The Chappal Project
'Chappal' means 'slipper' in Marathi, my native language
Chappal is a miniature ethnic slipper from the Indian subcontinent who observes life in Minneapolis. She developed her own voice post the isolationist environment created by COVID-19 and the militarisation of this city that followed the brutal murder of George Floyd. Chappal’s musings in Minneapolis and St.Paul are documented in the form of an ongoing comic series titled ‘Chappal’s Diary’. Chappal has also collaborated with the Minneapolis Institute of Art in a two part short animation series.
