Hi, I’m Sindu. I’m currently a freelance Designer/Urban Planner based in Canada. My interests lie in community building, climate change and spatial justice. While I’m not dabbling in those interests I find myself drawn towards making art. I like to explore my identity as a Tamil woman through a feminist lens, creating visual interpretations of various issues including patriarchal systems and the militarized state. I approach my work with the goal of striking a personal harmony between my identity, my politics and my culture.
I hope to keep this space and my instagram (@murukku) updated with my thoughts and creative endeavours.
For freelance or commission inquiries please feel free to send me an email at sindu.sivayogam @ gmail.com.
