About

Mita Mahato is a Seattle-based cut paper, collage, and comics artist, whose work explores the transformative capacities of found and handmade papers. Using collage and paper-making techniques, she builds multivalent images and stories that center on issues related to loss—including loss of life, identity, habitat, and species. Her cut paper comic “Sea” was recognized by Cartoonists NW as 2015’s “best comic book” and a selection of her poetry comics, collectively titled In Between, is now out from Pleiades Press. She is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Puget Sound, serves on the board for the arts organization Short Run Seattle, and is a teaching artist with the Henry Art Gallery.
