Mathur, Ashok


Ashok Mathur was born in Bhopal, India, and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1962 when he was one year old. Journalism school followed high school, and by 1981 Ashok was working as a photojournalist with small Alberta dailies and freelancing for magazines and wire services. "I was interested in how the visual image told a story," he says. In 1985 Ashok returned to school, completing bachelor and master of arts degrees at the University of Calgary, after which he started teaching at the University and the Alberta College of Art. "It was then that I became involved in community activism," he recalls. Ashok sat on the board of the New Gallery, an artist-run centre, and joined the editorial board of the literary magazine absinthe. "All the while I was fascinated by the process of literature and publishing," remembers Ashok. So he and co-founder Nicole Markotic started disOrientationchapbooks with the intent "to publish relatively unheard voices in a chapbook format." Ashok also became active in Minquon Panchayat, an activist artist collective comprised of First Nations artists and artists of colour that addressed racism in the arts on a national level. Currently, he is the Director of the Centre for Innovation in Culture and the Arts in Canada at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia. He is the author of the poetry book Loveruage: a dance in three parts, published by Wolsak and Wynn, and two novels published by Arsenal Pulp Press: Once Upon an Elephant and The Short, Happy Life of Harry Kumar, shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize.Mathur, Ashok is the author of 'Once upon an Elephant A Down to Earth Tale of Ganesh and What Happens When Worlds Collide' with ISBN 9781551520582 and ISBN 1551520583.
