Kathiucia Dias, known as ‘Kat’, was born in southern Brazil and spent most of her adolescence in New York until moving to California to further pursue art as a career. After landing a studio job and becoming an independent contractor as a commercial artist she decided to pursue fine art. She has furthered her education with LAAFA, personal research and experimentation and studied for 10 months at Safehouse Atelier with artists such as C.Dobsky.
As an artist Kathiucia seeks to explore composition, texture and space while maintaining a clear color key and value structure. She travels often and considers her ongoing studies on history, science and language and other topics an essential part of her artwork. Subject matter ranges from portrait, to figurative, landscapes and still lives as they are directly inspired by life.
She is currently represented by Abend Gallery in Denver, CO and works extensively with California Art Club. She has shown in numerous gallery and solo exhibitions including TRAC, and three consecutive years in the CAC Gold Medal Show.
