Discussion and sticker-making workshop with ANKANA
Discussion and hands-on sticker-making workshop with self-taught Boston-based multimedia artist ANKANA. The workshop is presented in conjunction with SHE SLAPS: Street Art Stickers by Women Artists from Around the World.
ANKANA, a.k.a The Harami Artist (she/her), is originally from Assam, India. Her earliest exposure to art came from seeing her grandmother's creations and watching her father paint. Although creativity ran in the family she was never encouraged to pursue art as a profession. Being surrounded by nature in her childhood heavily influenced her, and that influence permeates her work today. She experiments with ink, acrylic paint, watercolor, fiber, collage and digital photography, creating surreal imagery with elements of fantasy, grounded in reality as she experiences it. Using detailed patterns and bright colors, her work centers on and celebrates nature and wom*n/femme in a positive way. ANKANA started her sticker journey three years ago. In 2018 she participated in and helped organize the Priority Made Sticker show in Boston, Mass.
