Visual artist Shweta Mohapatra is an animation film design graduate of the prestigious National Institute of Design (Ahmedabad) and has done her post-baccalaureate at PASCA (France). Her interests lie in various forms of story telling, which could be via Illustration, Animation films, Installation, Products or Art.
Here is what she says ”To me life is a story of polarities that co-exist. The good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, love and hate, truth and myth – all exist together at the same time, in the same space. And ‘I’ – the storyteller/artist – stand surrounded by frames building upon and into them, reading, registering and reinterpreting. ”
Shweta co-directed an animated short film of CFSI (Children film society of India) and has worked as an animation film designer with the show Gali Gali Sim Sim (Sesame street India). Here are a few of her illustrations:
