Commissioned artist JAG LALL visits the Hola Mahalla exhibition

Jag Lall made it to the Hola Mahalla exhibition currently running at Kala Sangam in Bradford over the weekend.

Jag was commissioned to produce the following piece of Art for the exhibition based on a photograph I took at Hola Mahalla.

You can order the prints of it by clicking here.

Whilst he was in Bradford I managed to film an interview with him that I will be sharing soon. Jag was here as part of the Bradford Literature Festival that we currently have running in the city. It's really positive to see events like this come to our city and good exposure for the exhibition as it broadens the audience beyond Bradford.

Jag had produced some art for a book of poems by Sir Mohammad Iqbal (1877-1938) that had been translated from Urdu to English. I was intrigued to discover that the Sir Mohammad Iqbal has composed a poem called 'Nanak' about the founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak Dev Ji. I'll be doing a bit of research on this and hope to share some information soon.

I also managed to get a few pictures with Jag.

I'll be sharing the filmed interview with him in a few days.
