Meet the artist:
London-based artist Kavitha Balasingham (b. 1994, Kent) earned her MFA from Goldsmiths in 2022. Her artwork has been featured in various galleries, including a duo exhibition at Indigo Plus Madder and Sadie Coles HQ Shop, and has gained international recognition in Milan and Marseille. Kavitha’s achievements have been recognized by the Gilbert Bayes Sculpture Grant, the Goldsmiths MFA Junior Fellowship award, and support from the Arts Council England Project Grant which contributed to her co-founded project, ‘Ghost Show,’ an immersive exhibition that actively engages with the South London community through spoofy horror art.
Kavitha’s practice uses the whimsical and the extraordinary such as the illogical rules of cartoon physics and the idea of portals to transport you into a world that’s both strange and captivating. @kavitha.balasingham www.kavithabalasingham.com
