Since we last saw Gaurab Thakali’s work he has translated his ability to capture the lively scene of basement jazz bars to the broader world of editorial illustration. He has drawn film stills, beach parties, and languid pool scenes, as well as bustling cities and disease-ridden suburbs. The key seems to be activity, with all of Gaurab’s drawings communicating vivid, often frantic energy in the scenes built up in prints, paint and inky drawings.
He was featured at last year’s Pick Me Up, and has recently worked with Camden Town Brewery, Fireflies, Mosaic Science and Protein Journal, as well as completing tonnes of personal projects, including a book about life in Nepal post-earthquake.
