Saachi P. Mehta
MA Illustration & Visual Media, London College of Communication 2015
Saachi is a self confessed ‘curious soul’ with a love for finding out about our natural surroundings, quotations and proverbs. Her illustrations are based on the curious nature of the human mind and the proverb ‘curiosity kills the cat while satisfaction brings it back’ which explains that the dangers that are born by the curiosity of the human mind, can only be resolved by its satisfaction. The lessons learnt are the only teachings to satisfy this curiosity.
Saachi works across handwork, digital rendering with time based media and interaction design between this analogue and digital. She enjoys the freedom that comes with all these mediums, and how with the help of technology, they can all be merged to create wonder and amazement.
