​Meera Syal: COMING HOME presents a portrait of Wolverhampton-born author, actor and comedian Meera Syal by photographer Jason Bell, on loan from the National Portrait Gallery, London. 


Bell’s stylish image is the result of a collaboration between artist and sitter, and pokes fun at Bollywood stereotypes, a longstanding theme in Syal’s work. The portrait is on loan as part of the National Portrait Gallery’s COMING HOME project, which sees portraits of famous sitters going to places with which they have a strong connection.

COMING HOME is a major project which sees the National Portrait Gallery lend portraits of iconic individuals to places across the UK with which they are most closely associated. Fifty portraits from the National Portrait Gallery Collection will travel to towns and cities across the country from 2019 onwards.
