He began his career drawing political cartoons back in his native country. Moved to the USA in 1988 where he studied art at Worcester State University. He continued to combine the cartoonish drawings with his painting, subsequently resulting in his present style.

Bica’s work can be found in many public, private and corporate collections both in the United States and abroad.
