Time and Space, Text and Image, Personal and Public, Artist and Audience

  • This event has passed.

The Department of Visual Arts & Department of Media Studies jointly welcomes you to the Monsoon Semester's VA Colloquium, on "Time and Space, Text and Image, Personal and Public, Artist and Audience" by Professor Orijit Sen, Graphic artist & Cartoonist on Tuesday 10 October 2022 from 3:30 pm to 4:45 pm (IST) at AC04 310 (LR).

Abstract:  As a visual artist and social documentarian, Prof Orijit Sen has had an abiding interest in the interplay of apparently dichotomous, divergent and contradictory elements such as the ones listed in the title of this presentation.

In this colloquium, through a presentation of his practise in comics, murals, exhibitions, he will reflect on the divergent media forms and how these forms have continuously
informed his visions of a changing world, as well as shaped his graphic satire and artistic processes.


Bio: Orijit Sen is a graphic artist, muralist, cartoonist and designer based in Goa, India. In 1990, he co-founded People Tree—a collaborative studio and store for artists, designers and craftspeople. Along with his wife and fellow designer Gurpreet Sidhu, he continues to lead People Tree's design studio—developing in-house projects as well as partnerships with organisations working in the arts and the social sectors.

River Of Stories is his first full length comic. Originally published in 1994, it is thought to be the first Indian graphic novel. He is also co-founder of the Pao Collective of graphic artists, and chief editor of Comixense—a comics quarterly for young readers.
