Artist & Illustrator

Nishanth is an animator & illustrator from Bangalore, who is super passionate about creating cool characters, animation and in general moving objects in fun ways. Nishanth likes to play around with shapes, colours and exaggerated characters with a touch of subtle detail, while also adding an engaging narrative and juxtaposition. Nishanth also finds it interesting to have a unique and personal point of view in his work and likes to build on an array of characters and stories that exist in their own little corner of an ever-expanding universe.

The Story

What happens when a pair of shoes come together or move away from each other? Hi-5 At Sole Centre explores the possibility of connection and storytelling from the viewer's point. A loud and resonant ‘Hi-5’ is what happens when the shoes and my characters come together. What follows is a sense of action-reaction that creates vibrant sparkles, space-time wormholes, portals, and skateboards which are born out of my own interest in sci-fi, comics, magical elements and skate culture. As someone with an animation background, I enjoy using bold exaggerated characters and fun abstract shapes which are reflective of my identity. Creating opportunities for little stories to exist, and extending my repeating motifs like 'RaincoatDude’ onto new canvases, is my way of playing around with design elements in my work.
