CHiKA is a Japanese-born, New York-based New Media Artist. Creating minimalist geometric
shapes and visuals that explore in dark space and inviting people to reinvent themselves through
the relationship between objects and images.
My work focuses on the search of my identity. It begins with the journey of self acceptance for myself and knowing my worth. My focus is to help others to embrace their beauty,internally and externally, despite all the labels society holds.
My practice combines photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and video. I explore
issues of violence, political conflicts, and human behaviors by deconstructing iconic cultural
imagery as a form of critique and analysis.
