By Hiba J.

Better known as CHELOVE, Cita Sadeli is a woman of many hats. She dabbles in the worlds of fine art, illustration and interactive design. As a known muralist, CHELOVE creates large artworks through the city for government and commercial purposes. She’s the mastermind behind brand identity and marketing campaigns for the 2012 and 2013 Trillectro music festival, named one of AFROPUNKS “Leaders of Cool” and is one of four featured live paint artists for its 2015 Festival in Brooklyn.

Running the graffiti scene since the '90s, Cita decided to create her first publicly funded mural “Every Day I See Something New” in Adams Morgan in 2011. She has murals running all through DC. “We Are Takoma,” “Tell Me A Story,” and “Crossroads” are located along the Amtrak/CSX/Red Line subway between the NoMa and Takoma stations.

CHELOVE’s creative services include murals, live paintings, branding and identity, character design, typography, graphic design, interactive design, creative direction, and 2D animation.
