Sharmila Banerjee: Fame (detail)

Work / Illustration

Happy-go-crazy comics and illustrative insights into the psyche of Sharmila Banerjee

Pleasantly surreal, textural comics and illustrations from Berlin-based image maker Sharmila Banerjee include the unexpected likes of Grace Jones, anthropomorphic characters, jungle-cum-duvet patterns, The Numskulls inspired portraits and pineapple party scenes. Sharmila is a prolific maker in these sorts of works and, as member of comics collective “The Treasure Fleet”: and small press publisher of Salmiak Comics (with “Martin Ernstsen”: ), hers is a name that I have successfully (finally) triangulated between the Tumblr-sphere, anthologies and comics festivals. I couldn’t be happier.
