New Talent - Archan Nair (CORRECTION)


Here at PopDrawer, we generally focus on art that can be readily purchased. What can we say -- we're very acquisitive folks. But sometimes we like to showcase a new talent that doesn't necessarily have anything for sale yet, someone who is clawing their way up the fine art or illustration world. Today, that bright young star is Archan Nair, an illustrator/artist out of New Delhi, India.

According to Artist-a-Day, where we first saw Nair, the artist "specializes in interactive design, branding & identity, graphic and photo illustration, art direction, fine arts and progressive solutions." We can see this artist has an extremely promising future in illustration and advertising, but here's hoping for a future of fine art as well, because we know we'd love to hang a Nair work on our wall.

CORRECTION: The above photograph is a collaboration between New York-based photographer and Parris Whittingham and Archan Nair. Parris Whittingham took the photo, while Archan Nair drew the illustration. The work is part of a project called "The Dream Collaborative" that will feature rising talent in the design world and will be showing in Soho later this summer.
