Infiniti Whitley a.k.a ArtsyChiitos
Infiniti Whitley is a St. Louis native, mixed media artist. She graduated from St. Louis Community College in 2019 with an honorific AFA – Art Education and is currently pursuing a BFA at Fontbonne University. She has displayed work at Ferguson Sculptureworks art gallery “Mystics and Materials”. Her works reflect that inwardness, being greatly inspired by thought. Infiniti exploits the organic properties of fluid art in stark contradiction to straight geometric lines and representational forms. Her use of primary colors juxtapose black and white, representing the multiplicity of human emotion. The more complex aspects are represented through the randomness of design in the media. Her artistic interests continue to evolve, experimenting in fiber arts and design.
In 2018, she began using her passion for art education to start Infiniti Crafting Company, a sole proprietor committed to teaching the fiber arts online. From here, she began a career in crochet and knitwear design as she continued her undergraduate studies. While this micro business became her priority, she still continues to create art under the pseudonym, ArtsyChiitos. Infiniti has taken a small hiatus from producing paintings as she continues to focus on her business. However, she has begun to fall in love with creating again through ceramics. Ultimately, it is Infiniti's goal to inspire others to use their creative gifts for their own cathartic release. By building Infiniti Crafting Company, Infiniti has found a way to use her decade of artistic experience to create a world of intrigue for herself and others.
Bachelor in Fine Arts - Studio Concentration in Painting and Ceramics, Business Administration Minor
Experiencing a rich, studio intensive curriculum, Infiniti sought to find ways to enrich her business experience as she completed her undergraduate education. She became enchanted by the challenges of 3D art and changed her concentration from solely painting to add on ceramics. While deepening her knowledge of business management, Infiniti found a way to blend her love for fine art with her fiber arts business.

My artwork indulges my own introspection. Each piece is a private journey through the components of one's soul, broken into simplistic forms that viewers must interpret. The flow of colors and implied lines is a loose pathway around the subject matter. The dynamic streaks of color create a dialogue between the abstraction, geometric shapes, and representational elements. The strong symbolism behind each work leaves the viewer to form their own relationship with the material.
