Finding your creative voice can be tough. During this talk you will get a chance to hear how artist Murugiah found his creative voice and discover how you can find yours.


MURUGIAH is an award-winning artist based in London, U.K. Born in England and raised in Wales with Sri Lankan heritage, Murugiah trained as an architect in London before choosing his current creative path, specialising in illustration, art direction, typography and design.

Today, he makes psychedelic work infused with the dichotomy of his Sri Lankan heritage and western upbringing around themes of mental health, the impending doom of our planet, and climate change amongst other things. All made in a surreal, joyful, loud and unapologetic style using bright bold colours and detailed graphical compositions.

His selected collaborators and commissioners include New Balance, Apple, Disney, Marvel, Facebook, Penguin, Vans, Wired, Los Angeles Times, and Mondo. And he has been featured by BBC, Creative Boom, Creative Lives in Progress, Digital Arts, and SixtySix Magazine. Murugiah is currently available for projects and commissions.
