Tanuja Ramani is a freelance illustrator from Chennai, India, specialising in introspective graphite and charcoal works that infuse realism with a touch of the surreal. Her watercolour illustrations are wistful and explore a vintage aesthetic. She is continually inspired by her surroundings and observations of Indian culture. Tanuja is also very interested in the history of art as a collective, universal human practice, and its expression in culture and society through history—she 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.
