Indu Antony is a multidisciplinary artist based out of Bangalore and Kerala in India. Her journey as an artist began with a pivotal shift from studying medicine to pursuing art full-time. This transition allowed her to delve deeper into the art for understanding and representing the experiences of gendered bodies in public spaces. Her long-standing project, Cecilia'ed, exemplifies this exploration, as it sparks conversations about the presence and navigation of gender in our shared environments. She created the first ever drag king photo series - ManiFest that was exhibited in multiple countries and created awareness about LGBTQI+ issues.


Central to her practice is a commitment to community work and creating spaces for artistic expression and empowerment. In collaboration with fellow artists, she co-founded Kanike, a community art center that nurtures creativity and fosters a sense of belonging. Recognising the need for dedicated spaces for women, she also established Namma Katte, a women's leisure center that provides a safe and supportive environment for women to gather, create, and engage in meaningful dialogue. With the need for more women to enter the self-publishing space, she set up Mazhi books. Her first book published received a lot of accolades.
