Artist Takeover NAE
ARTIST TAKEOVER: JAGJIT KAUR
7 AUGUST 2020
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.
