Madhu Kumar was born and raised in India where she received her Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees. Kumar earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Regina with Great Distinction in 2017. Her oil portraits, paintings of horses, and landscapes have been in juried exhibitions in Ottawa and Regina.
Her current work is an ongoing series of large-scale paintings on the experience of immigrant women in Canada, and she is involved in David Garneau’s Edmonton based Tawatina Bridge art project. Madhu has exhibited her work in over thirty solo and group exhibits.
When asked about her artistic practice, she talks about the power of storytelling to connect and empower us. When she collaborates with the women who are portrayed in her work, she holds dearly to the values of creating a safe space and solidarity. It is her hope that the stories will illuminate women’s capabilities, imagination and resilience.
