Sandeep Johal is a Canadian-born South Asian artist living and working in Vancouver, Canada. She holds an honours level Diploma in Fine Arts from Langara College and an Education Degree from the University of British Columbia. Her work has been featured on Vancouver’s CTV Morning Live and Zee TV Canada, and the Spring Issue of Gray Magazine. Sandeep recently completed a design for the Front Street Mews Barrier in New Westminster, a mural for this year’s Vancouver Mural Festival, and her first solo show, Rest In Power, at the Gam Gallery.
I believe in the power of art to create awareness about issues related to cultural identity, gender equality, and human rights. My art practice is grounded in principles of symmetry and geometry and is an expression of my social and cultural concerns, particularly gender justice. My work moves between bold, colourful geometric forms and intricate black and white drawings, both aesthetically and conceptually inspired by my South Asian heritage.
