“The Art of Comics,” a lecture by visiting writer Mita Mahato
February 14, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Mita Mahato is a cut paper, comics, and collage artist whose work explores loss by engaging the transformative capacities of found and handmade paper. A selection of her poetry comics, collectively titled In Between, was published by Pleiades Press in 2017. Her book 1 was recognized by Cartoonists NW as 2015’s “best comic book,” and her comics art has been exhibited in galleries across the country. Mahato’s visit is part of a three-day Material Comix Workshop being sponsored by the Dept. of English; for more on this and on Mahato, see https://english.wsu.edu/visiting-writers/.
