Layer cutouts for a mixed-media effect
Hailing from Mumbai, India, Girivarshan (Giri) Balasubramanian is a self-taught graphic designer and visual artist. His work explores mixing media, shape, color, and form to create emotive works with ties to the abstract and surrealist cannons. In “Feelings Map,” Giri exposed the effect of the pandemic on mental health. Using Facet’s automasking and brushes, Giri created a heat-map-evocative work that uses warm and cool tones to interpret a person’s emotional state. The effect is at once attractive and unsettling. To test out Giri’s style, try his Facet pattern on your work.
