After earning her M.F.A. from Texas A & M, Bassi painted and exhibited in Europe and taught briefly at Homerton College in Cambridge, England. Her work hangs in Canada, the USA and México, with seven pieces in the Mexican government’s permanent collection. Active in promoting Mexican artists, Bassi also exhibits painters Najera and Nolasco as well as other local and mainland artists. Her own well-known works in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media are also on display. Known predominantly for her masterful interpretations of the rupestrian art of Baja’s Sierra San Francisco near San Ignacio, Bassi also paints colorful scenes of Mexican life and conducts twice-weekly art classes.
Bassi recently opened her new gallery space at Puerto Paraiso, near Hagen Dazs on the main level. The striking two-level space is sleek and contemporary. Her flagship signature gallery, Galeria de Kaki Bassi, has 3,000 square feet of hanging space at Morelos and Alikan in Cabo San Lucas, eight blocks up from the main light at Lazaro Cardenas. Original fine art along with prints, posters and sculptures are on exhibit at both locations.
