Dushan is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary illustrator, designer and educator whose evocative, conceptually driven imagery appears in some of today’s most influential publications. Winner of over 40 awards, Dushan teaches illustration at OCAD University, Ryerson University and Sheridan College and holds an MFA in Digital Futures from OCAD University. His research explores the aesthetics of the sublime, alternative forms of data visualization, issues of representation, radical pedagogy, and creativity.

When not drawing or designing, he can be found neck-deep in philosophy books incoherently babbling about philosophy and politics, indoor climbing or furiously whipping around on a bike when the weather is nice.
