High Artist Spotlights: SpaceChitts

Chitts started making art in 2018. Although she wishes she'd started in the womb. Currently pursuing her studies in Digital Media and Animation. She uses art as a medium to say things she's never dared yet in words. Much of her inspiration is drawn from human emotions and feelings, the ever complexities of the human experience and a deep fondness for greenery/nature and simple everyday things. She hopes to make a very successful living out of art and continue to create what she loves as long as she is able. She says, "Pray for the longevity of my wrist lol."
We recently caught up with SpaceChitts after High Art 2023 to learn more about her most recent inspirations:

Where do you find your creative inspiration?

Mundane everyday moments, human emotions, random thoughts or even a specific melody or lyric of a song, and also a strong drive to grow, improve and be good as my peers and to be able to illustrate exactly what's being conjured up in my wrinkly brain.

Why do you do what you do?

It is a outlet, it's always been there for me without judgement through every phase of my life. It's also like documentation, time capsule if you may, one day I can look back and recall exactly what I was feeling during the creation of an artwork.

What art/artist do you most identify with?

There's too too many, but here are some illustrators: Seongryul, Debbie Tsoi, Frederic Pillot, Helen(peanut.draws) etc.

What themes do you pursue the most?

All sorts of feelings, escapism, nature, I feel are most prominent.

What role does an artist have in society?

Artist in every form, give life to the human experience. I always remember the quote from Dead Poets Society, "We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."

What is your artistic outlook on life?

I worry a lot about life and what's to come although pointless, so remind yourself to be here and present, art helps me in that way, forces me to pay attention.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

You did well and I'm proud of you, your art is valued.

Do you listen to music while you are creating? If yes, share the song and artist that you listen to while creating art.

Current obsessions: Free flow - Kamal Evil - Interpol Rehab - Mokyo

What's the best thing about being an artist?

Literally to be able to put to paper any scenario I want.

What is your dream project?

Getting to work on a really lit animated feature! Not leaving this earth until I get to design a cool label for an alcohol beverage.​
