Masha Manapov, aka Mashkaman

.. is an awarded illustrator, designer and image maker.

Born in Baku and raised in Tel Aviv she is currently working from her London based studio and normally successfully avoids from talking about herself in a third person.

Throughout her career her flexible style was translated to a diverse range of projects including branding, packaging, editorial, books and marketing campaigns.

Her narrative led work contains the tension between nostalgic and rusty feeling and cutting edge technology.

I was born to be a Mozart, a mountain mover, a super hero. but for now I'm enjoying exploring the overlapping areas of visual communication and art.
