Amplify: Andrea Abeysekara

 

"I’m Andrea Abeysekara, I’m a Sri Lankan – Canadian artist, and I use art to make statements on social issues. As a Psychotherapy student and an activist, I’m constantly exploring the intersections between mental health and social issues like gender-based violence, racism, and climate change. Drawing strong women of color, and making South Asian versions of popular cartoons is how I love to express these ideas!"
