STUDIO MURUGIAH AKA Sharm Murugiah is a commercial artist living and working in London. Born in Birmingham, raised in the valleys of South Wales and originally of Sri Lankan descent, Sharm has many influences in his work, but identifies himself with the Jedi! Sharm is first and foremost an illustrator, a doodler producing original editorial illustrations, posters, book covers, campaigns and murals in an offbeat, cartoon-like style with work rooted in fun pop art and surrealism. He also loves to produce detailed compositions in his work. STUDIO MURUGIAH is a full service of illustration and art direction. If you're looking for a kick ass editorial illustration or cover design or a set of illustrations for a campaign or even a large illustrated mural, Sharm is here to help.
