Chila Kumari Singh Burman
Chila Kumari Singh Burman is a self-described ‘Punjabi Liverpudlian’ who likes to combine her Indian roots with popular culture to create mixed media artworks. She has been described as a South Asian pop artist; in her own words, her work is ‘A clash between high art and popular culture. An eclectic mix of art and activism addressing global protest’. Her artwork for Tate’s 2020 Winter Commission, Remembering a Brave New World combined autobiographical elements with neon lights, slogans and collage. This multi-coloured neon LED sign is an homage to the original Dream neon from that display.
This work was made in conjunction with Yellowpop, a neon LED sign company that regularly work with artists.
