Artist Takeover NAE

ARTIST TAKEOVER: JAGJIT KAUR 7 AUGUST 2020 http://www.nae.org.uk/blog/artist-takeover-jagjit-kaur/101 With exclusive new work created for NAE, we're excited to introduce our next Instagram Takeover by Jagjit Kaur Jagjit is a Leicester-based artist who graduated in BA Fine Art at De Montfort University 2019. Her works use paint, photography & collage. ⁣ ⁣ Drawing on traditional Indian portraiture, Jagjit's work combines elements of vibrant western culture which are juxtaposed against the serenity & nobility of her Sikh background. ⁣ ⁣ Jagjit is fascinated by the dreamlike, spacial quality & vivid colours that western artists such as Cy Twombly & Henri Matisse have in common with Indian painting. Jagjit aspires to capture this atmospheric visual harmony within her work. ⁣ ⁣ All facets of her identity surface within her work be it religion, gender or culture.⁣
