Voodoo Queens is a series of interventionist doodles created by illustrator Nina Chakrabati for I Want You Magazine. With a rotring pen, she doodled facial ‘masks’ and superimposed them upon photographs of women:
Nina was born and spent her early life in Calcutta, India. She moved to the UK in her teens carrying her stamp collection under her arm and little else. She studied illustration at Central St. Martins, and many years later, at The Royal College of Art.
Her work is often concerned with collections and the composition of objects. She works using Rotring pens, felt tips, biros, pencils, inks and the Apple Macintosh. She enjoys using different technologies and mediums and collaborating with others when the opportunity arises.
She lives and works in London, England.
