Illustrations by New York City based artist Sachin Teng. I Sachin attended Pratt Institute for my BFA in Communication Design with a focus in Illustration. In Sachin’s eyes, Art is a means of visual communication, a kind of aesthetic discourse. They can tell you whatever they want, to buy a new flavor of gum, to go to war, go to a concert, convert to a new religion or even to stop smoking. Art is the original subliminal message.
