Hi! My name is Siddhi and I'm an illustrator, printmaker and visual artist based in Bombay. I've completed my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from Kala Bhavana, Santiniketan, and my Post Graduate Diploma at Ecole Intuit Labs in Bombay. As an artist, my endeavor is to turn words into visuals.
I've dabbled in advertising, start-ups, production, space design, events and freelance. Together with ConsiousLeap, I had the opportunity to publish my first full-length graphic novel, which was released at the Mumbai Comic-Con stage in 2016.
As a freelancer, I've worked extensively with comedians, Varun Thakur, Neville Shah, Aadar Malik, and Kautuk Srivastava, for whom I've designed posters - two of which are featured on their comedy specials on Amazon Prime Video (yay!), and also painted and conceptualized the interiors for their office space. The experience I gained from creating the interiors for D:OH, a cafe in Andheri helped immensely in this. I've also worked with The Gaysi Family which is a brilliant pro-LGBTQ organization based in Bombay and collaborated with them on their annual zine, stationery and posters. I've helped them create and manage The Zine Bazaar, an annual zinefest in Bombay. In addition to that, I also consult the artists they collaborate with as an onboard design curator.
I've made a point to develop my personal projects over the last few years. I self-published my grad zine, 'Mad Sounds' in 2016 and it is now part of Bombay Underground's traveling zine fest. It was followed by 'Morning Routine' and many such illustrative series. 'The Storyteller's Tarot' is one of my most extensive personal projects, and I look forward to printing them soon.
I continue to freelance and draw, and collaborate on projects which strike a chord with me. My aim is to continue creating beautiful, tactile works that fill people with joy each time they experience them.
