Opashona Ghosh


Opashona Ghosh is a Graphic artist & illustrator born in Calcutta, India. Her graphic illustrations investigate the emotional landscape of the urban feminine and Eastern fantasy – in everyday rituals. Simultaneously a confrontation of and escape from the demons and demands of being ‚Äúthird culture‚ÄĚ,¬†absurdities of patriarchy and contradictions of neoliberalism. Her bold use of colours and style draws inspiration from pulp fiction, folk art and 90s esoteric rave posters – reclaiming and subverting both thematically and aesthetically. When not drawing her anxieties in sinister rainbow colours, she collaborates with techno artists and¬†queer¬†parties in London.

My illustrations¬†whimsically¬†explore¬†mental health, club culture and female gaze. With a subtext re-evaluating how we see and connect to contemporary psychedelica,¬†fragility of the human mind¬†and sexual liberation. You’ll find characters caught mid confession; confession of forbidden desires to transcend a sense of themselves.
