Meet one of the featured artists, Cita Sadeli ‘Chelove’
Cita Sadeli, also known as ‘Chelove’, is a selftaught multidisciplined creative who straddles the fine art, illustration, and interactive design worlds. The better part of her professional design career was spent as cofounder/director of DC/Brooklynbased Protein Media, an art, design & interactive company focused on initiatives for social good. A practicing fine/street artist in the early 90’s DC graffiti scene, Cita circled back to her roots in 2011 when she created her first legal mural, “Every Day I See Something New” in Adams Morgan through the MuralsDC program. She has continued to create murals throughout the city, including the collaborative production “Crossroads”, completed in July 2014 in NE DC. She is responsible for creating brand identity and marketing campaigns for DC’s popular Trillectro music festival in 2012 and 2013, and currently has two pieces exhibiting in the “Taking Back the Streets” travelling national art tour sponsored by Wat-Ah!, and the Partnership for a Healthier America. …she also grew up right here in Hyattsville (PG County stand up!).
