Nico Cathcart is a painter and muralist hailing from Toronto, Ontario, and currently living in Richmond, Virginia. She strives to discuss Feminism and Conservation in her highly-colorful works which often include local flora and fauna, as well as the female form. The artist is in the process of going deaf, and often includes birds in her work as a nod to her disability, a subject that she addressed in her 2018 TedTalk. A veteran of the past 3 RVA Street Art Festivals, you can now find her work in many cities across the us including Richmond, Ithaca NY, Rochester NY, Pittsburgh PA, and Columbus OH. Currently represented by BOJUArt out of Virginia Beach, her work has been
shown in many galleries and museums throughout the continent, including the The Virginia Museum of History and Culture, MASS MOCA, Gallery 5, Glave Kocen, 1975 gallery in Rochester NY, La Bodega Gallery in San Diego, District Local Gallery in Vancouver, and many more. She was recently honored by the VMHC as one of Virginia’s “Agents of Change” for her art-related activism.
