About Me

Hi there! My name is Devika Chandrababu Mahajan. I’m an artist and illustrator based in Punjab, India.

I have been painting since childhood and even as a working adult practicing architecture, art is what made me truly happy. So in late 2018 I took a huge leap of faith, put a stop to my architecture career and started making art hoping to make it a full time job.

Thus, The Artsychoke was born in a little corner of my room. 

The Artsy corner

Today my little ‘studio’ still remains the same but The Artsychoke has grown into a small business creating not just paintings and illustrations, but also meticulously handcrafted products like coasters, envelopes, gift tags and bookmarks, in addition to creating artwork for a wide range of products like tech accessories, clothing, home décor, stationery etc.


Shop Wall Art, Home Decor, Stationery, Tech Accessories and more from my Society 6 store.

I love botanical art and architectural illustrations. If you take a closer look at my portfolio you will see that I mostly stick to two styles – quirky playful like some of my illustrations and intricately detailed like my Kerala Mural Paintings. But if I had to pick an all-time favourite theme to paint it would always be nature- inspired illustrations.

I keep finding things all around me that pique my interest and hence I am constantly exploring and experimenting with new styles, techniques and mediums. 

I hope to bring a little bit of myself and my love for art to you through The Artsychoke.

Some random facts to get to know me better

  • I am a coffee loving, mildly anti- social introvert who frequently gets lost in day dreams.

  • I have a master’s degree in Architecture but I’m currently a full time artist.

  • I am a South Indian from Kerala married to a North Indian from Punjab and living in Jalandhar, Punjab (For the non-Indians reading this – it is very much a cross-cultural marriage and the only thing both of our cultures have in common is the love for alcohol).

  • We have a one year old son and like all mothers I think he’s the cutest baby in the world!

  • I am an overthinker. I overthink and overanalyze every single situation in life. Most of the stress in my life is because of imaginary problems that I make up in my mind.

  • I hate, absolutely HATE banana.

  • Love the sea

  • I rarely get angry but quite frequently get hangry. If you find me in a bad mood just feed me. 

  • Dog lover.
