A recent Illustration graduate from Loughborough University Nisha Mistry is a lover of typography and has a heavy influence in pop culture with vibrant colour.
“If there is one thing I am attracted to it’s vibrant colour, and it is something that has become a staple in my work. Inspired by the bold shape created with silk screen process, I illustrate with bold shape, created digitally, and filled to create a two dimensional, yet interesting and delightful image.
I tend to be influenced by pop culture, whether it’s a girl on the cover of a magazine or something mundane I see in an iconic city, I like to take it and make it flamboyant. There are illustrators who like to raise awareness or tell a story but I just enjoy illustrating images that make people happy and emanate fun and excitement.”
“I also love designing typography, and manipulating the shapes of letters in order to create a certain style or mood. With type I find there are no boundaries with experimentation; there are so many original designs created and so many that are yet to be created, and that is a challenge I always enjoy pursuing.
My recent artwork had been inspired by media images, mostly those that are part of western pop culture. I take inspiration from this as it is something that I, and many people from this generation can relate to, and therefore use it to capture the interest of the majority.”
