Shreya Gupta Dreamy And Delicate But Also Storytelling And Provocative Illustrations

Shreya Gupta is a New York based illustrator. She is originally from India but her passion for drawing and illustration brought her to States where she pursued MFA in Illustration from School of Visual Arts, NY. Her illustrations visualize concepts varying from novel reviews and book jackets to articles about confronting sexual harassment and other social or women issues. Whatever the narrative may be, Shreya’s style remains beautifully rendered with textures, patterns and line work which always tell a story with thoughtful care and delicacy.
