Visual Communication – Vishaka Mantri
Wanderlust is a project that looks at walking as an activity that brings the past and the present together, a walker walks through his or her old experiences, while creating a new present as s/he heads towards their future. In this manner walking knits through the fabric of time and provides us with infinitely fertile experiences that are renewed every time we take a walk down the same road. This project is a personal exploration of the concept of home. It follows me as I walk through experiences and places that have made me who I am; it is my search for home or lack there of.

Vishaka Mantri is an illustrator and graphic designer whose works develop from a constant need to define and resolve the conflict between cultural context and personal reality.
Having lived in Kolkata, Mumbai and Singapore Vishaka believes that good design is always deeply rooted in context. Therefore her works directly respond to the surrounding environment and use everyday experiences from the designer as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context.
Her works not only document but also provide perceptive insights into the mundane realities of everyday life. Vishaka Mantri currently lives and works in Singapore.
