CV



Anu Ambasna is a London born Artist, DJ and Broadcaster. Anu’s self-taught artistic practice focuses on building worlds through her intricate hand drawn comics and illustrations, which act as a diary of sorts. She takes inspiration from the mundane and often difficult aspects of life, with humour centered in everything she creates. The protagonists of Anu’s comics and illustrations are sometimes strange to the eye and often center paunchy brown bodies, with themes of family, identity, music and club culture filtering through.
