Natasha Subramaniam & Alisa Lapidus are a multimedia artist duo who create unconventional, dynamic work that seeks to push the visual and narrative parameters of representing gastronomy. They co-founded the Los Angeles-based studio CHAYKA SOFIA with a passion to produce interdisciplinary projects that merge the cinematic and culinary worlds. From everyday ingredients to world, haute, and molecular cuisine, they are deeply inspired by the raw beauty and culture of food.
Their work has screened internationally in festivals including Telluride and Melbourne International Film Festival. They have also been featured in online and print journals including NOWNESS, The Huffington Post, LA Weekly, NOTCOT, Daily Candy, and others.
