David Diao
True Light Lutheran Church 1

acrylic and enamel on canvas
30 x 30 inches

Diao's home, school, and church were located in an area between Chatham Road and Nathan Road. His life centered around his school, which was two streets away from his home, and a church one block away, which often distributed cards with reproductions of religious paintings. It was likely that Diao's interest in art was piqued by the church's handouts.
