“The next 8static is Sat Aug 24th – Bubbly Fish, Danimal Cannon, Boaconstructor – visuals by CHiKA at philaMOCA 531 N 12th St” -tweet from @8static
We could say “visuals created by,” or “on visuals,” but lets just say… innovating every aspect of the visual spectrum, we have CHiKA. Her approach creates amazing art that moves. She manipulates stretches and modifies in real time using breathtaking color palettes and striking imagery. All of this is performed with a musical sensibility to perfectly compliment the musician. CHiKA is a veteran visualist having backed up huge artists like Bit Shifter at the 2010 Blip Festival.
