While the whole culture is looking at you, are you still looking at yourself?

I have spent quite a bit of time in Mattancherry. But when I thought of responding to “Mattancherry”, instead of interpretations there are only questions before me.

Are you looking at this alone or are you accompanied by a belief?

# Are you looking at the past or future?

# Are you looking at beauty or are you looking at the meaning?

LATHEESH LAKSHMAN

A designer and illustrator by right, Latheesh’s intense passion for all things visual stems from his keen observation and engagement with popular culture-an attribute evident in every line of his illustrations and every single aspect of his art direction and design. Constantly chasing perfection to the very minute detail, he comes from the school of thought that brings about change through design-led interventions and his works have been crucial in revamping many enterprises.

Latheesh started his career with Ogilvy Bangalore in 2003. Since then, he has worked for agencies such as Wieden + Kennedy London and India, Ikea Design London, DDB Mudra Delhi and Wolff Olins Dubai. He was also instrumental in branding the first edition of the Kochi Muziris Biennale.
