Swantribune began with a desire to create a world where the bizarre was the essence, where art had a sense of innocence, the courage to be colourful and beautiful without provocation. To simply share what I found wonderful on my travels or in my own imagination. Thus the illustrations symbolise the souvenirs of our life’s journey, within and out.
It all started in a room within a block printing factory in Jaipur, and today has been able to grow through the collaborations with inspiring people, different brands and concepts.
