Game & Multimedia Artist

I am Nobonita Bhowmik, a Bangladeshi from Uzbekistan, and  a game & multimedia artist. I have a background in digital media and art, graphic design and motion graphics as well as game development. I have been in game development teams consisting primarily of creators of marginalized backgrounds, making games that champion progressive, inclusive ideologies.

 

As a female artist from a third world country, I believe that building community in this multicultural setting with its many unique perspectives in visual development will enable her to create and bring out a lasting positive impact on future game projects to inspire and influence others.
