NYC based artist Vin Ganapathy draws on multiple influences that inform his imagery and work. Mixing pen, pencil and paint, Vin's 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.
