Ketna Patel

Senses provoking collages by Singapore-based mix media artist Ketna Patel. Ketna believes that "artists have a responsibility to reflect and project the changing society we live in." For her, this translate into powerful Asian images recently transmuted through pop art. Diverse religious icons, the extremes of real life and the rigid chaos of the Asian social landscape are displayed though bold electric colours. "This is Asia, this is what I see," she says.

Her art can also be found in lifestyle products, interiors (such as a local coffee shop below) and furniture where the cultural information is re-presented to test the boundaries between Art, Lifestyle, Marketing and Design.
