Poonam Mistry

Poonam Mistry

I came across Poonam Mistry, a recent graduate of the University of Hertfordshire whilst looking through Creative Reviews Best of D&AD New Blood entry. Unfortunately, I was unable to get down to London whilst it was on, but from what I’ve seen via the internet, it looked excellent and worth a visit (maybe next year).

I know, if I had the opportunity to see her work, Poonam’s would have stood out amongst the masses to me. Reading through her blog, it’s hard not to recognise that she draws much inspiration from Indian culture (her most recent work) and literature and has a wonderful and sensitive approach to pattern.


 I adore her work and love how she’s applied to it other media very affectively, as seen below with the wooden cutouts. I hope to see more of her work in the future.
