Dasha Biggs was born into the world of art in Moscow, Russia. Mesmerized and inspired by the mysterious and colorful paintings of her grandfather, Daria’s first artistic attempts emerged as doodles that eventually evolved into drawings and paintings. After moving to the United States in the Los Angeles area, her work became noteworthy and captured the attention of the Rhyman School. Here she landed a scholarship and became entrenched in the study of art, it’s expression in multiple forms, and presented at various galleries including the LACMA.
A natural course of work took her on a pathway into graphic design and animation. But, her talent landed her a job in Las Vegas as a venetian mask artist for a major hotel. A few years later, Dasha returned to graphic arts, designing games for customers around the globe.
Her passion is her art and shared projects with her best friend and life partner, Mike. Together they hope to take their art efforts worldwide and become seasoned travelers.
Las Vegas is probably the perfect venue for artist Mike Biggs. Not only can Biggs meet the demands posed by a city of extreme entertainment media, the city itself also fosters Biggs’ fascination with the contradictions of a civilized world: Light and dark, temptation and life and death. After all, these are normal to ponder if you are like Biggs and the son of a preacher man.
Biggs’ artistic expression is anything but dull, and sometimes controversial. Drawing was Biggs’ first artistic form and size didn’t matter. As a child, and in his own private world during the night, Biggs would draw grandiose images on his bedroom walls. This dismayed his parents who often sought solutions with many coats of paint and suitable punishment.
Unphased, Biggs continued his pursuit in developing his passion and obsession, and attended the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies and Performing Arts for four years. Apparently he had finally connected with his tribe, and was actually selected in his senior year as the most artistic in his class.
After graduation, Biggs continued his studies at the Art Institute of Phoenix where he obtained a degree in computer animation. Combining this with his artistic talent, Biggs launched his career in Las Vegas designing casino video games. As his career progressed and his network of contacts grew, Biggs’ portfolio expanded as well.
His clientele has ranged from major hotels and resort properties to law firms. He has designed album covers for bands, book covers and even murals for homes and businesses. His fine art talents can translate to almost any industry and client base, and has even acquired appreciable recognition with his original tattoo art.
