Jesse Kanda, the Canadian-Japanese director and VFX whizz-kid now based in London, has directed a beautiful music video of computer art for ultra-mysterious R&B artist Twigs’ How’s That.

The video dissolves from the figurative to the highly abstract in a very pleasurable way, thanks to Jesse’s special secret sauce of VFX software and processing. Now signed to Prettybird, his eclectic mix of graphic work has included fashion films for Comme des Garçons and Blk Dnm, and a promo for the Woodkid album The Golden Age.
