Benjamin Thapa

Costume & Set Designer

  • Location: Sheffield, UK
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

Originally educated in graphic design, I worked in fashion and photographic production as an art director for just under 5 years before specialising in costume and set design for performance. Through the variety of my training, I have developed a broad skill set and multidisciplinary approach to creative thinking and storytelling as well as a keen sense for visual metaphor. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been exposed to a diverse spectrum of cultural history from a young age through my mixed Nepalese and British heritage. Investigating how narrative can be utilised to bridge cultural, social and generational divides is a significant motivation for me on a personal and creative level. I strongly believe in investing in future generations, and engaging with youth through working with young companies as well as in producing work for young audiences is something I am always keen explore.
