Nico Cathcart is a Female muralist, graphic designer, illustrator and sign painter working in Richmond from Toronto, Ontario. She holds a dual BFA in Painting and Ceramics, completing coursework in SUNY Oswego, and Graduating Magna Cum Laude from SUNY Cortland. Cathcart works primarily in acrylic and latex paint.
Nico’s work focuses mainly on nature. She started painting whales and jellyfish out of her love for the water, and interest in ocean conservation. Currently Cathcart has been focusing on the flora and fauna around Richmond, and how it is being affected by the surrounding population.
Nico is also a founding member of the currently dormant group “The Muralistas” which is a means to bring together female muralists to challenge the predominately male industry of mural painting.
When she is not painting, you can find her with her dog, Bill Murray, or out exploring the beautiful southern wilds around RVA where she draws most of her inspiration.
