[ahrt NIH-kee]

ahrt NIH-kee was created by Nicole Rios, a Brooklyn born artist. She has always loved colors and shading. Her first study of art began with hanging out with local graffiti artists and attempting her own style. Exploration continued in college where she studied with Costa Vavagiakis. She learned the most from him. After some time away, she came back to creating work with different mediums and ever since has continued to explore concepts.
