Apsara Engine, won the LA Times Book prize for graphic literature. 

 

Her work explores themes of gender, sexuality, memory and urbanism, among other things. 

 

Her website states: On a formal level, some of my pieces conflate the tools of architectural representation with those of sequential narrative in order to question these very methods and offer new means of representing space, time and the role of the body in both simultaneously.
