Statement

Priyanka K is an illustrator and muralist from Kolkata, India. Her work uses graphic narratives, printmaking, and sketchbook imagery to explore themes of solitude, power, urbanism, decolonization, and existing in a queer brown body in spaces not built for it. 

Her graphic narratives have been published in multiple comics anthologies, including 'Drawing The Line' (Zubaan Books), 'First-Hand: Graphic Non-Fiction from India', and the upcoming 'Bystander: Stories, Witnessings and Observations from South Asia' (Kadak Collective). Her murals can be found across India, Cambodia, and in the US in Philadelphia, New Orleans and Baltimore. She is currently working on a children's book about the history of colonization and segregation in Indian cities.
