Rick Kitagawa is an award-winning visual artist, storyteller, and arts educator based in the foggy hills of San Francisco. Rick is a multidisciplinary artist that weaves together digital with traditional media, text and imagery, abstract and figurative subjects, and painting and printmaking. What results is a visual journey into a dark world of his own that pays homage to the horror genre, identity politics, and pop culture all while examining the human condition and the darkness within us all. Heavily inspired by the themes of H.P. Lovecraft, Rick creates both cosmic horrors as well as a dark collection of alluring yet dangerous women who are often more than meets the eye.
