“COSMICPUNK” by Indian artist duo BOOMRANNG.

BOOMRANNG, an up-and-coming artist duo active in Mumbai, India, has released numerous works in collaboration with global brands such as Nike, Apple, Google, and Coca-Cola. Influenced by ancient Indian myths and cultures such as Japanese and Western anime/comics, the two created a modern myth called “COSMICPUNK” and will present their artwork at their first solo exhibition in Tokyo. Masu. The world view that combines a passion for untold stories and a love for science fiction is a work full of maximalism and retro-futurism, and is a graphic art that connects important values ​​to the next generation and the future.
* ID Vol.2: “COSMICPUNK” – Stories connect us – by
BOOMRANNG *

India is a country where diverse cultures, languages ​​and religions coexist. The myths and stories of each region and religion are deeply rooted in people’s daily lives, and festivals such as Diwali and Holi promote community identity formation and understanding between different communities. On the other hand, in large cities such as Delhi and Mumbai, modern lifestyles have spread along with economic growth, but opportunities for young people to come into contact with traditional culture are decreasing. This problem is also seen in Japan, where there is a need to maintain a balance between tradition and innovation while passing on culture to the next generation. Against this background, BOOMRANNG created the modern myth of “COSMICPUNK”, depicting the essence and emotions of humans that have remained unchanged since ancient times.

* ■ Artist profile *
BOOMRANNG
Studio is a design studio founded in 2020 by Sonal Vasave and Makarand Narkar from India. They are known as the “Cosmic Punk Design Studio” and create artworks filled with an impulse for the future and a passion for hope. It has collaborated with global companies such as Google, Apple, YouTube, and Nike and has become an icon of Indian pop culture.

Their design philosophy is “retro-futurism,” which depicts the future imagined in the past in the present, expressing admiration for society and a sense of happiness. Through art, we aim to rekindle hope and positive emotions for a better future.

The two worked together at Sir J.J., a prestigious art school in Mumbai. They met at the Institute of Applied Art and have shared a passion for narrative work, sculpture, and pop culture. On my days off, I enjoy visiting mythical and legendary places, eating out food, relaxing at home with my cat, and continuing to work energetically in my peaceful daily life.
