Jag Nagra is a queer visual artist who is passionate about community development and ending the stigma against LGBTQ+ people within the South Asian community. She focuses her art practice on concepts that depict a sense of confidence and fearlessness—she unapologetically celebrates darker skin tones and South Asian garments and motifs.
She has collaborated with organizations such as the Vancouver Canucks to make art for their very first Diwali jerseys which gained international attention and has had numerous public artworks on display throughout Metro-Vancouver that honour her heritage. Her artworks have been acquired by the Museum of Vancouver for their permanent collection.
Through art, she has found her voice and a new appreciation for her culture and identity.
