Hardeep Pandhal (b.1985) lives and works in Glasgow. Pandhal's work employs lurid colour and content to create work in an array of media. His sketches and texts borrow from a variety of sources such as comic books and political satire and his collaborative works span crochet, knitting and embroidery with his mum, as well as collaborations with friends and musicians. The production methods Pandhal adopts and the broader historical influences in his work are directed towards creating provocative viewing experiences that blur the categories of social realism and psychedelia.
Pandhal's work was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, the Glasgow International Open Bursary, the Drawing Room Bursary Award and the New Museum Triennial. Solo exhibitions have taken place at: Cubitt, London; Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival; Eastside Projects, Birmingham; Collective, Edinburgh; David Dale Gallery, Glasgow; Comar, The Isle of Mull; and Castlefield Gallery, Manchester. In 2013 Pandhal was awarded a Leverhulme scholarship to complete the MFA programme at The Glasgow School of Art.
