Sukhjeven graduated in Sept 2009 from Wolverhampton University in MA in Fine Art.

Specialising in New Technology and New - Media and the ideas of Cultural Identity and Race in British Art & Culture.

This is his own very personal view of what Identity means to me in the world I live in today.

What does my Identity have to offer in today’s society when we are living in world after 9/11.

The world has changed and so has the art world. Asian art is predominately becoming of interest to people around the globe. "I am tackling 'race' for example ‘skin colour’ head on and also discussing the ideas of why the arts are so white? All these ideas are linked together to create a body of powerful work. I want the viewer to feel a first hand experience with what I have and am experiencing and to think about what they are looking at because it is very important to me that we understand where we are coming from to know where we are going." 

He uses the word 'PAKI' in his work, this is used in a derogative sense which provokes many feelings for myself and the viewer, they feel as if they don’t know what to do with this word as it stares them in the face. 
He is very interested in racial, cultural and symbolic words, texts and the construction of language.  

BRIT.ISH was a huge commission for Sukhjeven. It was sold at TATE Modern and Britain Art Gallery shops between 2010 - 2015 and was sold out! 

Having grown up in this country and being 3rd generation British Indian. Sukhejven believes his everyday experiences inspire and push him to create new ART works and his ideas are always developing further. "My passion in Art is extendable and this shows in my work today."
