Firangi Rang Barangi

Firangi Rang Barangi (Hindi for "colourful stranger") explores the relationship between identity, dress and hybridity. Combining North American street style with Indian textiles, garments and jewellery, this series re-imagines identity across borders.

These life-sized acrylic paintings exhibit a fearless use of colour, bold pattern and finely rendered detail. These Firangis are equally at home in New York and New Delhi. Each is distinctive, layered with cultural history and personal style.
