Sachin Teng is an artist and illustrator from New York. Teng holds a BFA in Communication Design from the Pratt institute. The artist’s practice is packed with bright, poppy illustrations for a digital age.

Teng has provided illustrations for a variety of well-known publications including the New Yorker, Popular Mechanics, Wired and the New York Times. I really enjoy the animated feeling that Teng brings to illustrations – sometimes literally, as a few of the digital illustrations on the artist’s websites feature animated elements. It’s a really eye catching and unique way to update an illustration for online consumption.


Teng’s style ranges from a slightly skewed and saturated realism to more simplified, cartoonish drawings. In a few cases the more complex works are reminiscent of the surreal art of Hannah Yata or Soey Milk. Each work brings an original, thoroughly modern perspective to a wide range of subjects and discussions.
