Shraddha Mandale is a 21-year-old creative soul full of visuals, sparks, rainbows, fantasies and not to forget pizza! An Advanced Applied Art student from Bombay, she doesn’t shy away from accepting her love for pizza!
A typography assignment where she wanted to explore as many mediums as she could, Mandale ended up with a bottle of ink, sketching random animals. The thought process of creating the ‘Ink Series’ is about exploring the graphic style with various stools. Capturing a form with ‘one stroke’ is the most challenging part of the whole art process.
Shraddha starts off by visualising various forms and species of birds and animals. With a clear vision in mind, her tools boldly manoeuvre with ink on paper. Her tools include jet black ink, cartridge papers, cut nibs, Chinese brush and candy sticks.
This series surprisingly was a quick work of art. ‘This one style is something I needed it to be an instant’, says the young artist. To come up with this series, she made a point to create one illustration/sketch every day. It took her mere seconds to complete the final sketch, excluding the hours spent before perfecting each stroke!

Being curious inspires Shraddha. Her surroundings itself are an inspiration to create new art every day. She also possesses a curious and investigative mind that needs to be challenged on a regular basis.
