Graphic Novelist| Author| Painter


India's first female graphic novelist, Amruta Patil is acclaimed for her genre-explicating novels which indulge in themes like ecology, mythology, intertwined feminism, and the ceaseless filament of stories passed down from generation to generation through the ages.


Her debut graphic novel,'Kari', traversed themes of sexuality, friendship and death. Her two subsequent graphic novels 'Adi Parva: Churning of the Ocean' and 'Sauptik: Blood and Flowers' make up the Parva duology which re-narrates pieces from the Mahabharata from the perspective of the storytellers. Her most recent work is a collective project with mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik – Aranyaka: Book of the Forest (2019).


In 2017, Patil was awarded the Nari Shakti Puraskar from the President of India for “unusual work that breaks boundaries” in art and literature.

She speaks substantially on females in storytelling, mythology and art in the present world, eco-feminism, diversity and relationships.
