Shivam Bapat

Welcome to the new section of my blog where I highlight some of the talented creatives that I’ve followed from around the world. These fortnightly posts will highlight a small amount of the talent that is already out there, and hopefully promote more collaboration, rather than competition between creatives.

This week we’re highlighting the work of Shivam, a 22-year-old Advertising graduate from Mumbai, India.

You can find him on Instagram and Youtube
