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 education and 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 publicly funded 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, and “We Are Takoma” in Takoma DC. Both murals are located along the Amtrak/Red Line subway line between the NoMa and Takoma stations.
Cita is responsible for creating the 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 WatAah!, and the Partnership for a Healthier America.
