The Cloth of Pride

“Not only did this allow me to incorporate the Tanjore technique, I feel each layer of pattern within the cloth symbolises my journey of finding confidence and learning more about my identity. Having come out as gay️‍️️‍️‍️, I feel my life started again from day one, from that moment I have seen the patterns within the cloth grow and transform into this colourful piece of art, in which my life is now. I believe this painting is a symbolic portrait, that represents the strength, courage and self-discovery of the south Asian LGBTQIA+ community’.”
