Biography

Hello I'm Sharm and thanks for stopping by STUDIO MURUGIAH. Here's my story: I arrived at commercial art in the best way possible, the long way. From a young age I was always drawing, growing up on a healthy diet of American comics, Scifi & horror movies I was way too young for and pop punk rock music. Nearing the end of my time at school I knew I wanted to draw for a living. Unfortunately the powers that be namely Parents and teachers advised me to work in a creative industry that had a regular income. So I trained as an architect for 7 long years BUT throughout my architecture degree I found myself being more attracted to the illustrative parts of the course. I was also becoming more aware of graphic design and illustration. I eventually left architecture to work in house as a designer for Scribbler cards and later at LEON restaurants, again leaning towards the illustrative parts of these jobs. Taking in all that I had learnt over this long journey I eventually set up on my own as a self employed commercial artist and started STUDIO MURUGIAH. I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients since I started Studio Murugiah including: Little White Lies, Creature Features, SciFi Now, Amblin Entertainment, Hipchips, Disney, Courier Magazine, Greenpeace, No Exit Press, Novation, Bandai Namco, Sony, Lucasfilm, AMC, Spot Magazine, New Statesman.

I tend to enjoy working in an off beat cartoon style inspired by the comics of my youth covering a plethora of subjects from surreal imagery to detailed character filled images to quirky maps and more realistic character pieces. In 2014 I won a D&AD award, the 'In Book Award, Magazine & Newspaper Design/Entire Magazine' as a contributing illustrator for Little White Lies issue 49, and have had work on display in galleries and exhibitions in America, France and the UK, most notably ‘Star Wars - An Art Odyssey’: an officially licensed Disney/Lucasfilm Star wars show in Marseille. I'm also a bit of a chatterbox ask me a question about movies, art or creativity and I wont shut up until i'm told too! I've put these skills to good use speaking about careers in the arts at schools and running workshops in London.
