Kassia Rico is an Asian Mexican American artist based in Los Angeles. She holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. She works with painting, drawing, design, illustration and surface design, specialized in colorful and concept driven work.

From novelty goods to stationary, apparel to home fashions, mural projects to interdisciplinary installations, her illustrations and hands on work help tell a story.

In her studio, Rico’s work is firmly rooted in drawing. She explores the spontaneity of line work, graphic shapes and color to translate the mundane with a playful yet mature visual language.
