Priya Kuriyan received the Big Little Book Award, illustrator category, in 2019. As a child, Priya took a keen interest in drawing and reading books with illustrations. She’s always been interested in making visual narratives and storytelling through pictures. She’s written and illustrated over 80 books for children.
In Priya’s photo story we are exploring how technology and digital tools have integrated into her world of illustration. The Internet has made it possible for artists to maximise their reach to people, especially through social media. And so begins a dialogue between art, the artist and the viewer.
