Sapna Patel, The Multimedia Artist
I met Sapna through networking on Instagram, when I was working my ஒருதீவிலிருந்துஒருநகரம் meaning “A city away from an Island” project. A important project, as this was my first step back into looking at Tamil culture, it was through this project I had final found my style, aesthetic and genuine passion for the work I create again. Sapna‘s creative styling skills, as well as her beautiful handcrafted jewellery pieces, played a big part in this discovery; something I am really grateful for. Since meeting we have been constantly collaborating together and shooting her stunning South Asian inspired jewellery; shoots that you see on mine and Sapna’s Instagrams; with Sapna working and multitasking as a skilled stylist, whilst creating so many diverse backdrops for each of shoots.
She is a creative of many talents, from creating striking south Asian inspired jewellery to hand drawn graphic hoodies. To me she is a gifted artist who is constantly creating, whilst studying fashion textiles and design BA at Middlesex. When I first saw her work, I thought her work is authentic and different; it even inspired me to create a few jewellery pieces for my own work and our collaborative shoots for, ஒருதீவிலிருந்துஒருநகரம் meaning “A city away from an Island”.
