Gurminder Sikand

About Me

Born in the Punjab, Gurminder moved to Britain with her family at the age of ten. She graduated in Fine Art from Birmingham Polytechnic and since then has had several solo and group exhibitions. She was a participant in many of the pioneering Black and Asian art exhibitions of the late 1980s and 1990s, and has also featured in many women's art shows, including the 1992 "Myth, Dream and Fable", in which Paula Rego was one of the four other exhibitors. Gurminder's paintings have been bought by several institutions, including the Arts Council, Cartwright Hall in Bradford, Nottingham Castle, Walsall Art Gallery, Wolverhampton Museum and Art Gallery, and by many individuals.  Her paintings have featured on book covers for Heinemann and Oxford University Press. She has held many residencies, including at the University of Nottingham, and given workshops at schools and other educational and public bodies. If you would like to inquire about purchasing Gurminder's work please contact her.
