About the Artist: 

Sunandini Banerjee: Completed her Masters in English Literature from Jadavpur University, Calcutta in 2000 and joined Seagull Books as an editorial assistant. In 2002 she designed her first Seagull Books catalogue. She is now Senior Editor and Senior Graphic Designer and designs all of Seagull’s acclaimed books, covers and catalogues. Her digital collages are inspired by the diverse range of Seagull’s titles. Created entirely on the computer, combining photographs, paintings, sculpture, woodcuts, line-drawings, magazine clippings, and text, these collages are both an interpretation of and a response to a wide range of poetical, philosophical, political and other texts. Sunandini has illustrated Thomas Bernhard’s ‘Victor Halfwit: A Winter’s Tale’; Ivan Vladislavic’s ‘The Loss Library’ and Diane Meur’s ‘In Dreams.’ Her most recent work has been an illustrated edition of a new translation of Isha Upanishad. Her work has been exhibited throughout India as well as in Cologne, Shanghai and Sri Lanka. She lives and works in Calcutta.
