Gaby Rico was born on January 2, 1979, in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. She now lives in Edinburg, Texas, USA. Rico is a self taught artist who began painting in 2006. Rico has exhibited art work in multiple cities across the Rio Grande Valley, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Italy, Spain, Denmark and many others.
The manner in which she tends to execute her paintings can be described within an array found between Abstract and Expressionism, despite the admittance of transcending the established rules. Gaby Rico often intends to provoke visual pleasure no-boundaries in her work. Rico loves mixed technique approaches because of the sense of absolute freedom while creating art, and the endless richness from materials and perceptions that result in nourishing the eyes and the soul.
