Based in Los Angeles, Kassia Rico is an Asian Mexican American artist specializing in Design and Illustration. She holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. Her outputs include design, drawing, illustration, editorial and surface design, with an excellent eye for colorful and concept driven work.
From novelty goods to stationery, apparel to home fashions, mural projects to interdisciplinary installations, her illustrations and hands on work help tell a story.
Firmly rooted in drawing, Kassia commonly produces hand-drawn illustration before using Adobe Creative Suite to manipulate and enhance. She explores the spontaneity of line work, graphic shapes and color to translate the mundane while targeting a playful yet mature visual language to demographic groups.
