Rajiv Raman

Raj is a sculptor and a graphic designer. His graphic designs resemble subway maps. Perhaps they're a bit too familiar to the urban dweller, but he has always been fascinated by them. The way that they distill complexity down to a simple bold geometry is mesmerizing. Raj tries to tell a story through each map, one that isn't immediately obvious at first glance. His art is an inside joke that he hopes makes viewers laugh (or cry, he'll take either) when they realize they aren't just looking at a subway map.
