Since you loved our previous art post and we couldn’t fit so much talent into one, we’re back with the Second Edition of Pop Goes The Easel!

Below are some genuinely sterling artists, all young Mumbaikars and bursting at the seams with creative genius.

  1. Aakanksha KukrejaHello! I’m Aakansha Kukreja. My interest primarily lies in graphic design, typography and illustration. I enjoy experimenting with methods and mediums but prefer to work digitally. When I’m not spending my time stalking talented designer’s works or trying to get better at my own, I like collecting boxes, books and lamps and also have a weakness for stationery.  I’ve worked professionally for and with clients such as Propshop24, The Protein Bake Shop, Canopy Avenue, The Elbow Neuron Company. I’m currently working on taking certain personal projects forward to a larger scale.

  3. Rounak Magoo
    Rounak, 19, has started a project…..or shall we say, a challenge called ‘The Girl Who Drew’ which has quite the fan following.
    The reason for this project is simple. I love art. I love drawing. I love the feeling of satisfaction one receives when you realize you created something beautiful on, what once was, a blank sheet of paper. However, I am only 19 and I am just getting started. I really need to push myself to do train myself on a daily basis. Some of what I draw is inspired from other artwork I see around me, with tweaks here and there of my own.That is how The Girl Who Drew was born.
    My goal is to complete a drawing a day for however long I can. I hope you enjoy the work as much as I like making it. Check out her page here.

7. Diti Mistry
 I shifted from Delhi to Mumbai 4 years ago for my graduation. As a child I doodled anything and everything to escape studies. Having a family full of artists, creativity came as gift to me. My doodles are like my alter ego, we work together.
As a child i would rush back home from school and see my mom making another piece of art and each day we discovered a new game.. my inspiration for my doodles come from day to day conversation, events, things people say. All these wonderful conversation run in my head and I’m constantly doodling. I wish to show my art to people and make them happy.
