Jagjit Kaur is a multimedia artist focused on painting and digital college based in Leicester. Blending and building and pushing images and worlds together Jagjit looks to create a visual harmony. The source points may not be cohesive (whether screen shots from Instagram or gallery archives) but come together to form distinct and thoughtful compositions. Through her work, and the duality of her identity, she brings together her English and Indian culture, often painting traditional Indian subjects in a non-traditional manner and material.
