Kiel Johnson is a locally based Los Angeles artist who not only creates mind-blowing illustrations, but also makes incredible realistic pieces with only the use of cardboard, hot glue and tape. He recently was the artist in residence at Cypress Hill College for an intensive three day workshop with students to help him create and film his upcoming video project with Roger.TV. During his stay the students were able to learn what it’s like to be hands on in the studio as well as see Kiel’s process from conceptualization to realization and produce some seriously cool robot outfits for the shoot.

“Chirality is a scientific term describing a structure that is not identical to its mirror image. Chiral collects cinematic etudes, which develop various conceptual approaches in order to expand the two-dimensional image into space.
