Raised and shaped by the landscape and culture of Hyde Park, Chicago, IL, Nikko Washington has been creating art since he can remember. Beginning with drawing, and then painting, and finally graphic design and screen-printing, Washington's skills have solidified into a complete artistic arsenal.
Washington's unique style fits a perfect balance of erudite and fresh. His particular aesthetic has allowed in him to excel both directly in his own individual works as well as in his role as the artistic director for Chicago hip-hop collective, Savemoney.
Being so directly tied to the beat of the Chicago music scene, Washington has become a highly sought after album cover artist designing pieces for artists such as Kami, Noname, Joey Purp, Vic Mensa, Towkio and many more.
