Vinay Somana Ganapathy
Born in southern India, raised in suburban Connecticut and formally trained in Syracuse, Brooklyn artist Vinay Somana Ganapathy draws on multiple influences that inform his imagery and work. Mixing pen, pencil and paint, Vinayâs illustrations are marked by fine, almost-frail line work and sudden bursts of color. Taking slice-of-life inspiration from the city around him and his crew of oddball friends, his drawings are strangely kinetic and eerily true-to-life. Having done illustrations for books, storyboards for animation and countless napkin drawings for girls in bars, his portfolio can now be viewed at his website (click images for detail).
