Sandeep Johal

Sandeep Johal is the 2018 Indian Summer Festival Artist-In-Residence.

Sandeep is a Canadian visual artist whose colourful geometric forms and intricate black and white line work is aesthetically and conceptually inspired by her South Asian heritage. Rest In Power (2017) is a body of work dedicated to twelve women from various cultural backgrounds whose murders impacted her deeply.

She believes in the power of art to create awareness around issues related to cultural identity, gender equality, and human rights. Her art practice is an expression of her social and cultural concerns, particularly gender justice. Her most recent series, Rest In Power (2017), is a body of work dedicated to twelve women from various cultural backgrounds whose murders have impacted her deeply.

Sandeep has recently completed a number of public projects, most notably, a mural for Vancouver Mural Festival (2017). Her work has been featured in Vancouver’s CTV Morning Live, CBC Arts, The Vancouver Sun, The Georgia Straight, This Magazine, Gray Magazine and numerous other print and online publications.
