In this latest podcast, Raksha Patel talks about her upbringing in Leicester, how her art turned full circle from focusing on race and identity through surrealism, fantasy and dystopia and back again. Raksha also talks about her art education career, and the need for British artists of South Asian heritage to gain more recognition and representation.
