I am Piyali Barua. I live in the most multi-cultural,
multi-disciplinary and vivid country, India. By profession,
I am an Animator, Graphic Designer and Illustrator,
currently working with the Branding and Professional
Communication Team of a multinational in Bangalore
In 2010 I completed my Post Graduation in Animation
Film Design from the National Institute of design, Gujarat.
NID is one of the pioneering and prestigious institutes of
design in India. In 2005 I graduated with a degree in
Visual Arts from the Government College of Art and Craft,
Animation and illustration is my core competency and
interest and they also happen to be the hidden poppies
that are spread across my everyday life. I enjoy creating
graphic novels and children's book illustrations as well,
in my pastime. Some of my work has been appreciated
and nominated for national and international festivals too.
Inspite of having a full-time job as a Graphic Designer,
I take up Children book illustration, Graphic novels and
Animation extensively as my part time freelance work.
They work beautifully to ignite my creative instinct and
so I came up with the idea of Iceland poppies.
This is also the domain which I wish to take up as my
full time engagement, later on.
So anybody who needs help in illustrations to support
their creative writing; telling stories through sketches;
are welcome to check out my work in the work section
and can contact me at iceland poppies for freelancing
