Anuj Shrestha’s comics and drawings encounter themes of identity and progress, in all of its competing notions. A new collection of the artist’s strips, titled “NEW FEARS,” offer some of his latest reflections. Elsewhere, the Philadelphia-based illustrator has had his work published in Wired, The New York Times, The Intercept, and other publications.
“Dark, haunting, and exquisitely rendered, Anuj Shrestha’s NEW FEARS documents the terrors of a post-apocalyptic future and a dystopian present,” Issue Press says. “Includes Identity, for which Shrestha was awarded the gold medal by the Society of Illustrators for the 2019 MoCCA Arts Festival’s Awards of Excellence in the Single Image category.”
