Canvas & Visual Artist

chimisworking on SoundBetter

Hello I am Chim! I am a visual artist and music lover based in Istanbul. I worked professionally as an art director for a very long time, so I am good at many different programs. I am interested in 2D animation ( especially frame by frame is my passion and rotoscoping), digital drawings, video editing and motion graphics.

Whenever I listen to music, I find myself dreaming of the music video of the song I listen to because I think the music and visuals are a magnificent couple. We all have stories we want to tell, and I just want to help with that.

I can't wait for your amazing songs to come together with my visuals. I am open to any idea. I would love to hear about your projects! Please don't hesitate to contact me.
