Suman Kasturia

I make drawings and paintings that reflect my inner and outer worlds. They are often small, detailed and realistic. I see the work as an extension of self-portraiture. Instead of recording myself from the outside looking in, I draw myself from the inside looking out: I draw what I see around me. Many of my images are like polaroids or postcards in that they capture the feeling and appearance of being in a particular place at a particular time. They evoke memories, but at the same time they have become new objects with new stories, existing in their own right.

I studied painting at the College of Creative Studies at UCSB, where I had the opportunity to dabble in botany and ecology. I've recently joined UIC's Biomedical Visualization program and am exploring medical illustration and animation.
