To the rebellious minds and warrior souls in modern society.
Nowadays, we live in an era where everything is open and connected.
You can touch the history with several clicks,
meet someone from the other side of the world with a tiny swipe,
hear every information about who’s who why what where when and how, without any effort.
This project is also up and running thanks to the modern world.
It brings opportunities.
We embrace that.
But it brings some other things as well.
There is a certain type of information overload that creates global tension.
Here comes a noise. Bully. That kind of crap. We know you know.
It leads the courage of self-expression to continually diminish.
Then everything tends to become routine.
Similar shit. Boring.
We believe we should be equal, but not identical.
That’s why, besides everything, we felt the necessity to put the universal human truth into this project.
And we wanna remind you some kind of things you already know:
Your personality is the most unique thing you can have.
Your self-expression is the most pleasing action you can do across the all universes.
You can see some sort of bold, courageous, chaotic, rebellious self-expression in our artworks.
There are thousands of different personalities with hundreds of attributes.
The line between cultures, present, and past is blurred.
They don’t belong to any era. They are completely free.
At first sight, you may think you bump into stylistically anime characters. Then you might come across personalities with shiny modern T-shirts and ancient attributes at the same time, female samurais with cigarettes, the hipsters with ninja weapons - all the polarizing shit that are not supposed to make any sense together. But here they are.
In life, there are times you feel that being just open-minded is not enough to get comfortable with your identity, rightfully so. You need a warrior soul to stay courageous. That’s why our characters, besides their wild diversity, also have the metaphorical thing in common. They are all armed and ready to fight for what already belongs to them.
There is some sort of polarizing chaos in the NFT collection name as well.
Being from completely different cultures and genres of dictionaries, these two words in the Naming are also not supposed to make any sense together.
But here they are:
Shuriken originally means “hidden hand blade” - some kind of extra weapon. It points to the mindset and also serves as a built-in identity of our NFT characters.
Chik is our modified version of the modern slang “chic”, which means cool and stylish, very much like our characters. It’s grammatically incorrect, but who gives a shit?! While developing the verbal and visual identity, this variation felt awesome. And here it is.
So here is a thing.
In a noisy modern world, you can be whoever you wanna be. And you should.
Run your own race with the rebellious mind and warrior soul. This is an endless run of life.
If you are the one, these pieces of art might be made for you.
