Shrey Sawant, born in Goa, better known by his writers tag 'Flyin Munki', is a Graffiti artist & an illustrator. His name came through his fascination with the Indian Langurs during his childhood, Later translated to Munki. He was inclined to the art & creativity since his childhood, drawing on walls of his home in Goa & expressing his mind. As a majority of the Indian population, he was streamlined into the field of engineering but his art was by his side, hand-in-hand. In the year 2011, he broke the Indian household stigma of 'success comes from academics' and decided to pursue his career by displaying his art to our society. He started off as a graffiti artist and illustrator and his growth as an artist led him to expand his expertise to different art forms, that are digital illustration & tattooing.
His art form is diverse, taking a dip into an old school comic theme as well as a futuristic theme, inspired from the cartoons & anime that he grew up watching. His rendition of the monkey has been one of the cruxes of his art ever since he started off. Munki is also a part of 't3k' along with 3 other prolific artists, a graffiti crew representing South India.
