Art has always played an important role in India’s rich culture. Indians have always been visual people and hence various art forms and styles have developed in different regions of the country. Art forms have always been a channel to express emotions and feelings. Anant Kulkarni recognized this and realized the need to communicate visually.

Anant Kulkarni is an illustrator and designer based in Mumbai, India.  He has been in the field for over 25 years. Anant was interested in art from a very young age and was able to improve his drawing skills with the guidance of his teachers. He graduated from the reputed J. J. Institute of Applied Arts in Mumbai where he later taught. Over four years of studying art, he developed an interest in creation of visual and pictorial forms and designs. He chose to work on his illustration skills as he was keen on the subject of Visual Communications.

The thing that makes Anant’s work stand out from other Indian illustrators is his contemporary style. His art follows a simple ideology of engaging visual communication through basic shapes. Transforming objects into forms using geometrical shapes, he keeps his audience engrossed in the visuals, maintaining their curiosity. He is able to translate this same aesthetic both by hand and digitally.
