"Unposted Letters" is a collection of illustrated stories by Indian visual artist Vimal Chandran that portrays various soulful moments of life captured in a frame with a pinch of surrealism in it. The main characters from the illustrations are a boy, a girl, and a red umbrella wherein the red umbrella is often shown as a metaphor for Love. Each illustration is a letter from the boy to the girl accompanied by a caption/prose. Vimal started making Unposted Letters illustrations in 2010 and they are mostly inspired by pop culture. The illustration style is very minimalistic but vibrant and conceptually driven.

Vimal Chandran's work is often a skillful concoction of urban art, illustrations, graphic design, photography, and film. The artist is currently working in Bangalore, India.

When my husband was wounded my letters were sent the wrong place, he thought I'd left him. His commrades assured him I did not. A week later he recieved all the letters I'd written that week. Same thing happened at home, his letters stopped then when they all showed up at one time I called his Mom and we cried we were so happy.
