Tanuja Ramani is a freelance illustrator and artist based in Chennai, India, specialising in moody graphite and charcoal works, that infuse realism with a touch of the surreal. Her watercolour illustrations explore a vintage, nostalgic aesthetic and she is continually inspired by her surroundings and observations of Indian culture. Tanuja is very interested in the history of art as a collective, universal human practice, and its' expression in culture and society as it developed over time, and combines this inspiration with a meticulous, hand-drawn approach to create custom illustration and visual design. She has designed books, logos and identities for companies, packaging, posters, and editorial illustration.
