    About the Artist

    Madhu Kumar (BFA, BA, B.Ed) is a Canadian artist. Using the power of art and storytelling to connect and empower, Kumar’s art practice combines painting and digital media to create a respectful space for immigrant women to share their experiences. Kumar earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Regina with Great Distinction in 2017, and her Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees from India. Kumar emigrated to Canada in 2001. In addition to her art practice, Kumar teaches classes in art, and works as a community volunteer. Kumar’s achievements have been recognized with the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards in the category of Arts and Culture (2020). Her artwork has been exhibited internationally and is held in private and public collections in India, Great Britain, USA and Canada including University of Regina, Saskatchewan Arts Board. Kumar worked with David Garneau on the Tawatina Bridge installation project in Edmonton. Her on- going portrait series, “Stories of Immigrant Women” combines large scale paintings with text, audio, and augmented reality. Whilst touring Saskatchewan, the artwork has inspired significant dialogue and community reflection on the experience of immigration, racism, and violence.
