Biographical Info
Rakhee Jain Desai is an interdisciplinary artist whose work creates dialogue about immigrant identity and belonging. Her current body of work utilizes the centuries-old, wax-resist textile technique, Batik. The combination of Batik, an Eastern craft, with traditionally Western mediums (encaustic, oils and acrylics) is a signature process that aptly communicates her South Asian American identity. Her work, A Place to Call Home, 2018, for the City of Austin Art In Public Places (Tempo2D program) integrates the stories, hopes and aspirations for new immigrants in Austin, Texas. The Batik mural named A Place To Call Home is now on permanent view at the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. @rjdartist
