Lekha is an Indian American queer woman originally from the suburbs of California. She comforts herself by reminding herself that she is one of many 20-something year old’s trying to figure out her life’s purpose. When someone asks her to write a bio, she really doesn’t know what to call herself. She is neither an “artist” nor a “writer” but is poking her head up from beneath the water of uncertainty into both those worlds. Lekha is learning, and trying to absorb, and she's doing both these things to keep her brain active and her soul fed. She recently returned from a Watson Fellowship year exploring artist identity within two contexts: the global and the local. Whilst traveling about, coordinating meetings with art world practitioners (and waiting for replies), Lekha also exercised her writing skills through AFO, which she finds to be a more than warm and welcoming space to share her thoughts surrounding contemporary art.
