My name is Kim Ouweleen, I was born in 1988 and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I am an illustrator, graphic designer, author and go teacher. My artist pseudonym is Murugandi.
From a young age I started drawing and discovered that I love to explore my creativity. During elementary school I was fascinated by animals, which filled the pages of my sketchbooks. During high school I became interested in surrealism, developed my own style and started writing. In 2006 I studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Rietveld School of Art & Design) and began my studies of art history at the University of Amsterdam. In 2012 I received my Master of Arts degree.
My passion for art has grown over the years and I’ve come to realise that creating is what fulfills me most.
