Japanese born, New York based artist, CHiKA has joined us at the VFL as our Spring artist in resident. As an undergraduate student CHiKA studied photography at SVA and went onto work in graphic design. She spent her early career getting inspired by her friend's music and creating visuals based around music. Eventually CHiKA went back to school and had to make art on a budget. She explored LED mapping and created small prototypes. CHiKA moved on to create large installations utilizing what she's learned about design, lighting, and music.
