5. Nidhi Iyer
As a visual artist, Nidhi’s work amalgamates a keen sense of narrative flow, aesthetic vibrancy, and a larger awareness of key aspects of the current cultural zeitgeist. As an Art Director at Homegrown, there’s an authoritative finality to every project she collaborates on and an unmatched visual style that gives the campaigns she’s a part of a look and feel that’s seemingly alt and nonconformist but still delicately straddles the edge of what’s immediately attractive to most audiences. There’s an edgy playfulness to her art that is a welcome imposition on the identity of every brand she works with, whether it’s experiences for brands such as Bacardi, Visual Identity design for Power Horse/Dewars, ad films for Adidas or everything else she’s undertaken over the course of her career thus far.

7. Eeshani Mitra
With a body of work that’s a sublime pastiche of moodiness and angst, there’s a palpably dark decadence and an ethereal glow to Eeshani Mitra’s photography. Her stills and subjects are interspersed with the beauty of the natural world; incorporating butterflies, flowers, air and water. The visual aesthetics she utilizes has an almost sentient glow and envelopes your senses. While some of her more avante-garde pieces of work might seem alien and strange at first, the more time you spend with them the more you feel and embrace the enveloping warmth of her artistry.
