Bishakh K. Som

Bishakh’s work investigates the intersection between image and text, figure and architecture, architecture and landscape. They are inspired by the grammar of comics in aid of exploring themes of gender and sexuality, memory and urbanism, love and loss. 

Bishakh’s comics have appeared in The Brooklyn Rail, Buzzfeed, Ink Brick, The Boston Review, The Huffington Post, The Graphic Canon and the Eisner and Harvey-winning anthology Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream. They received the prestigious Xeric grant in 2003 for their comics collection Angel and have illustrated The Prefab Bathroom: An Architectural History, published by McFarland Press.
