Wajeeha Abbasi is a Karachi based Illustrator and Graphic Designer working under the name 'Wasabi Illustrations'.

She completed her Masters in 'Illustration and Visual Media' from London College of Communication, UAL in 2015 and Bachelors in 'Communication Design' from Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture in 2012.

With a background in graphic design, she has found a passion for illustration and has developed her own style, using patterns, bold shapes and vibrant colours, her work represents narratives, moments from every day and her ideas on the metaphysical philosophy of the Self and the Other.

Other than illustrating, she enjoys indie music, art documentaries, going to gigs, weeping on chick flicks, travelling, collecting postcards, watching cricket and spoiling her cat. Read Less
