Girl To Know: Manjit Thapp ✎
Manjit Thapp is a young twenty-something illustrator out of the UK. We recently added her into our Girls Directory, volume 2, where she is accompanied by 19 other headstrong females doing amazing things in the creative arenas. I caught sight of Manjit's beautiful "girlpower" illustrations on Instagram and instantly fell for her use of vibrant colors and mental messaging of female empowerment, particularly in the arts. In most of her drawings she references Asian culture to portray females of her generation. Then, there is her penchant for fashion, Wes Anderson and recent works for Adobe x International Womens Day and of course that illustration of Solange commissioned by Refinery29. Her illustrations are not only visually defining the generation of the new wave of feminism, but it's certainly relatable to fashion, tech and pop culture.
