Sinta Tantra is a contemporary artist who exhibits art all around the world. Our friendship started one summer in Camden, North London when she was asked by a very naive and clueless project manager to paint a 40m bridge...
Sinta pops round for a chat and we talk about how people can make sense of modern art when it's often toilets and unmade beds to the naked eye and how our heritage influences our creativity. Minidisc players (RIP) get a brief mention and of course, when south Asian, Caribbean, Indian and African DNA meet in a kitchen, we have to talk about food too.
Find Sinta on Instgram and Twitter (@sintatantra), her art is truly sensational.
