ABOUT THE ARTIST
Chamindika Wanduragala is a Sri Lankan American visual artist, puppeteer, stop motion animation filmmaker, DJ (DJ Chamun) and the founder and Artistic Director of Monkeybear’s Harmolodic Workshop, an arts nonprofit that nurtures artists of color and Indigenous artists in contemporary puppet theater and sequential art. Her artwork portrays her version of what writer/activist Audre Lorde referred to as biomythography: the intertwining of experience and history with personal mythology.
