With an objective to show the importance of nature conservation, environment and sustainability, Rohan Chakravarty, cartoonist, illustrator and animation designer, hailing from Nagpur, showcased his works ‘Pugmarks and Carbon Footprints’, which throws light on environmental issues, on Friday at Goethe-Zentrum.

Rohan Chakravarty had decided to give up a career in dentistry and started drawing for wildlife and conservation after his memorable encounter with a beautiful tigress bathing in the Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary waterhole. In this exhibition, he displayed 54 cartoons on wildlife conservation and sustainability.

Shankar Pamarthy (Sakshi Telugu Daily Cartoonist), winner of World Press Cartoon Grand Prix inaugurated the exhibition. “Two years ago, I saw Rohan Chakravarty’s work in Bengaluru. Today, every cartoonist likes to work on political satires.

He did great work by drawing cartoons on wildlife conservation. Hyderabad has recorded a low percentage of conducting cartoon exhibitions. In upcoming days we are planning to organise a national contest on cartoons on nature,” shared Shankar Pamarthy.

Rohan Chakravarty, creator of Green Humour said, “I started drawing cartoons from 2009. In my cartoons, I would like to show the problems that we are facing by neglecting wildlife conservation.

I started my website, Green Humour to encourage cartoons on nature.” The exhibition, a collection of 300 illustrations, will be on display until April 30 at Goethe-Zentrum, Banjara Hills from 10 am to 6 pm.
