"Art – is to communicate the creativity of soul to the world without using words"
Mehraj is the differing Personas of Mehraj are an ongoing artistic journey, exploring the many facets of Sba’s personality, interests and passions. This makes her not just an interesting person but also a visionary artist. She wants to showcase her three main alter egos - the Mughal Indian Princess, the 1980s and 90s Bollywood Actress-Socialite and the Hackney Rude Girl - through her art.
“To create my pieces I use rich-coloured fabrics with various print techniques, which then can be embellished using embroidery or gold leaf: the play of light is an important part in the majority of the work I create. The initial inspiration of my work comes from photography. My creativity and passion is fuelled by my Muslim Indo/British heritage, the art and history of the Mughal period, the Indian Royalty and their palaces, with the romanticism of the British Raj. I then add individuality to this with anything that tickles my fancy! I have extended my art into ‘Klassy Kitsch’ label; a range of designer scarves, including a collection of ethically sourced and produced scarves from Bhuj, Gujarat and Mumbai, in India.”Biography
