Jas Charanjiva

About

Jas is a self-taught artist. At the age of 12 while living in California she received her first professional skateboard and loved the art on the back of its deck. This led to her obsession with underground art and her style naturally began to take shape as she paid close attention to street art/graffiti and underground art. She often uses non-conventional characters in her work.

Jas' latest venture is Kulture Shop, an art + design brand that curates and champions the best Indian Graphic Artists from around the world and prints their exclusive works on limited editions tees and art prints. www.kultureshop.in
