Hi! I’m Shyama (rhymes with llama and the Y is silent). My background is in oil painting and graphic design, but after a decade of working in the graphic and interactive design fields I figured out that I’m more into the art side of things. These days I work as an independent illustrator and artist based in Brooklyn. Previously I’ve lived in Austin, San Francisco, and pre-previously I lived in Sri Lanka and New Zealand and a bunch other cities in Texas where I’m from.
I’ve been commissioned by: The New York Times, Apple, Wired, Cosmopolitan, The Atlantic, The Undefeated, Fast Company, Texas Monthly Magazine, Red Bull Music Academy, and many others.
