Meeting the illustrator, Nina Chakrabarti was a really refreshing experience. Her attitude to work could be perceived as old fashioned as she aspires to cater to herself first and foremost and does not concern herself with marketing schemes or how her work is perceived. In an interview conducted in her studio in south London, the artist discussed her move from Calcutta to London, her time spent at Central St. Martins and the Royal College of Art and her plans for the future.
