    The Artist Salon is an opportunity for emerging and established visual artists to learn from arts professionals and discuss opportunities in the arts community. Each month features a different guest presenter for inspirational talks and professional development advice for visual artists.

    The March session of the Artist Salon was with Vancouver based artist Sandeep Johal.

    Sandeep’s work ranges from intricate black and white line drawings, to colourful large-scale murals. Since having her first solo exhibition in 2017, she has gone on to working full-time as a professional artist at festivals, residencies, and exhibitions.  Sandeep will share her artistic journey with us, offering many tips and inspiration to visual artists on how to take your art practice to the next level.

    Presentation includes English transcription/captions using the app, and was live-streamed on the Zoom platform.

    About the artist:
    Sandeep Johal is a Canadian born South Asian visual artist and muralist. Her art practice engages drawing, collage, textiles, and large scale mural painting. Sandeep’s work centers around storytelling – focused on the resilience and resistance of woman, particularly those who have succumbed to violence and femicide. She has worked with the Vancouver Art Gallery, Burrard Arts Foundation, Vancouver Mural Festival and Indian Summer Festival, and has been featured in numerous print and online publications, including The Globe and Mail and CBC. Sandeep lives and works in Vancouver, BC with her family.

    Session Format: This session was a free live-streamed webinar on the Zoom platform.
