I’m Arjun Ram Srivatsa. I am an artist, musician, poet, animator, creative director, video director, video editor, motion designer, graphic designer, sound designer, podcaster, journalist, art critic, fiction essayist, trend forecaster, birdwatcher, socialist, and friend living in Manhattan.
I hold a masters degree from Columbia Univeristy’s Graduate School of Journalism.
I was most recently the Director of Programming and Development for Pitchfork. From 2020 to 2021 I hosted Diversity Hire, a podcast about being “POC” in media.
You can find more examples of my work on Instagram.
Lena Greene and I co-created the music video for the lead single off of May Rio’s French Bath. Lena came up with the initial idea for the video and brought me in to develop the storyboard. We both have a background in animation so we wanted to make the video feel magical.
The land on which this video was filmed is part of the ancient homeland of the Lenape people. We pay respect to Lenape peoples past, present, and future and acknowledge the colonization, genocide, and continued displacement of Indigenous people.
