Freezing Reality In a Frame
This collaboration is a part of Netflix’s Global Artist Outreach program where various artists from across the world are creating illustrations based on their interpretations of Season 1 and 2 episodes.
Sri is one of the most significant faces in the Indian modern art community. A Fine Arts graduate from Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University, he is currently a full-time designer, and is known for his eccentric caricatures and unique illustrations. His illustrations for Stranger Things will soon be available on the show’s social media platforms.
Sri started drawing when he was all of four years old. A majority of his creations are done using graphite, as it is his favourite medium. Sri's digital artwork retains the same textural qualities and techniques as his traditional ones. His approach to the illustrations begins with understanding not just the requirements of the piece, but also by observing the subjects of art keenly. The price of each art piece is based on the amount of effort and time taken, and the resources utilised. He will soon launch his personal project ‘The Art Factory’ in Hyderabad where he will conduct art classes for people of all age groups.
The first two seasons of Stranger Things became a worldwide phenomenon and after a long wait, the much-anticipated Season 3 is all set to release on Netflix on July 4. This season promises more chills and thrills, but with unexpected twists.
About Stranger Things Season 3: It’s the summer of 1985 and things are heating up in Hawkins, Indiana. But it’s not just sun, fireworks or summer romance --- there’s something below the surface of our characters and Hawkins that’s starting to simmer, but it feels different than before. Very different. After all, change is inevitable.
