Sheila Rooswitha Putri
Sheila Rooswitha Putri was born and raised in Jakarta. The Story of Lala (2008), Sheila’s debut title features stories about her daily struggle with mongrel street dogs, a hilarious family trip to East Java, and a frivolous pun-filled story of an unlucky thief. She continued creating heart-warming stories about her curious boy and active little girl on her blog, Sheila’s Playground. As most of Sheila’s stories are based on personal experience, Jakarta is a major inspiration for her. Her love of Jakarta has inspired many urban sketches and several comic collaborations with other artists. These collaborations also brought about her participation in various conventions and group exhibitions, both domestically and internationally, in London and Brussels to mention a few. Sheila proudly shows the world the uniqueness of her city in her artwork. Sheila has also given talks at various art events, where she shares her experience about how everyday life is the main inspiration for her works.
