CHINELO, the young and ambitious artist, is known within the Toronto creative community for paving their own lane, and making themselves known within a room full of forceful competition. Making strides within Photography, DJ’ing, Film Production positions, and whatever else that peaks their interest, they take pride in developing themselves as a Cross-Disciplinary Artist. Last year alone, while juggling the completion of their Honors Degree in Social Science – Criminal Justice, Chinelo embarked in their musical and creative curiosity which landed them either working for, or alongside some very notable powerhouses within the city. Getting booked left and right early into their DJ era, they never ceased to neglect their passion for photography. Their digital footprint began and flourished on Instagram but some may have seen their work featured in Liminul Magazine, BULLY Magazine Online Exclusives, Lomography USA, BlogTo & cover art work for the Jamaican musical force known as BAMBII. As of now, Chinelo has published a photo book titled,’The Metronome of Toronto’ which visually captures some of the most electric nights of the Toronto music underground. Bound to be known as a renaissance individual as they continue to feed into their curiosity and follow the dopamine, the Zimbabwean born individual is eager to get deeper into their craft and utilize the foundations they continue to nurture and build from the prior year.
