Singer-songwriter Chelou only makes animated videos, and now he has collaborated with one of the most exciting new talents currently working in animation - Cheng-Hsu Chung.

The Berlin-based Taiwanese animator has worked with illustrator Ricardo Cavolo to create this blazingly psychedelic affair for Chelou's song Wayward - in fact, a vibrant visual interpretation of the song's lyrics.

Chung and Cavolo imagine a world of possibilities for a cartoon version of Chelou: a landscape of random objects exist beneath his double pair of eyes; he leaves the lake where he lives on his legs of fire, transforming into a bird (and a cigarette) before flying off to pastures new, continue his journey of self-discovery, and ending up on a mountainside with the sands of time.

It's a trippier experience than his iconoclastic celebration of sexual roleplay in his video for Chk Chk Chk's Couldn't Have Known last year, but just as imaginative.
