Finding Inspiration in Every Turn


RIKA KOVA is a Chicago-based artist who mainly focuses on ceramics. She was born and raised on a farm in a small town in Southern Siberia. Being surrounded by different Asian cultures and growing up close to nature, she finds her inspiration in her travels, spends a lot of time outdoors, exploring new lands, and learning about new cultures.


 At the age of nineteen, Rika immigrated to the US where she developed her artistic skills, received an associate degree in Art and Design from the Community College of Philadelphia, and her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
