Ayeshe Sadr and Ishaan Dasgupta prize the artist’s most valuable tool: collaboration. Having worked in tandem for over 7 years, the pair draws inspiration from facets of mythology, fine art, textile, and nature to create their illustrations. Their New Delhi-based 211 Studio is the nexus for Ayeshe’s textile and Ishaan’s graphic design backgrounds.
Their collaboration has led them across genre and media lines — their illustrations appear in children’s books, including those published by Penguin, Scholastic, and Amberjack Publications, food packaging, wedding invitations, and restaurant murals. Their artwork has found us through high-profile clients including Coca-cola, the Lodhi Hotel, Monkey Bar, and Udaipur Music Festival. Their incredible illustrations and creative versatility prove the old adage true: Two is better than one.
