SAN ANGELO, Texas — Angelo State University will present a free public art exhibit by Nischaya Mathema, a freelance artist from Nepal, starting Monday in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.

Titled "Shanti (Peace)," the exhibit of Mathema's paintings and digital prints will be on display in the EFA Building's Gallery 193 and will be open for free public viewing on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through July 16.

According to an ASU press release, Mathema is influenced by both Asian and Western cultures and the exhibit showcases the combination of his handmade painting with technology to give viewers an insight into his creative mind.

"This exhibition's theme is 'Peace' as seen through my eyes," Mathema said. "This is my first-ever exhibition, showcasing artworks highlighting the two major religions in Nepal, namely Hinduism and Buddhism. It is a concoction of imitation pieces and my own compositions. I have worked hard to produce these pieces during the lockdown, which was a boon in disguise, as I could focus on producing these paintings."
