"Surrealism, colours and symbiotic curiosity are my happy place."
Shweta Sharma is an alumnus of NIFT Mumbai who specialises in graphics and illustration. She took to illustrating as a means of understanding herself, processing the myriad emotions she observed in others, and interpreting the dreams that have stayed with her since she was a child. Dreams about spaces, creatures, emotions, parallel existence, alternate histories, unearthly movie plots and music. These diverse inspirations make their way into her art that’s a mix of pop and dark surrealism - peppered with stories, a dash of humour and an absolute abundance of colours that she attributes to her Rajasthani roots. Her work including album covers have been featured on Discover Channel, BBC Radio, Bandcamp and A Humming Heart amongst others.
