Ketna Patel

Ketna Patel is a highly prolific, award winning British-Indian multi media artist known for her astute translations of 21st century Asian Pop culture. Using a myriad of methodologies and applications that blur the lines between Art, Design, Utility and Advertising, Ketna explores sub cultures and social themes emerging from Globalisation. This she does by spending half her studio time travelling and organizing / participating in ‘live community’ projects that especially explore the increasing rural – urban divide. She believes that for most artists, there is no divide between their ‘private’ life and their ‘professional’ output. All realizations and insights gleaned from inter-personal relationships, travels, media etc can be transmuted into a heightened awareness / expression of where human society is at today, and possibly where it may be heading towards....Her findings are continuing to be documented into dialogues between Arts Practice, Academia and Policy.
