Harshvardhan Kadam

Harshvardhan Kadam conceives, perceives and executes his experiences through visuals. With the mythologies seeded in his vision, he found his forte in contemporaneous storytelling. In 2007, Harshvardhan formed his collective, inkbrushnme, which is well-known in India for providing beautiful illustrations, unique and well-designed characters for graphic novels and children’s books. His first graphic novel was an adaptation of a Deepak Chopra’s book, Buddha: The Tale of Enlightenment. He has also consulted as art director for animation and live action films for various production houses across India. Harsh’s fascination with mythology comes from his father, Vijay Kadam’s, work. Vijay Kadam was associated with Amar Chitra Katha comics in the early ’90s. Art and design school fired Harsh’s potential into a distinct style that he is now known for. He has initiated a public art project called SEWD—Searching for Empty Walls Disorder. SEWD is a restless artistic disease, which results in modifying unused urban spaces into public art landmarks.
