Frank Wesley, was a prolific and influential artist from Azamgarh who later worked in Mussoorie, India. He became known for pushing boundaries in religious art forms and he won various accolades. His art work had broad appeal, with his work featuring in a Vatican display, on the first UNICEF Christmas card and, perhaps most notably, on the urn for the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. In this podcast Professor Nathan Grills from the Aii, who has a personal connection to Frank’s artwork through his work and research in Mussoorie, speaks to Frank’s son Michael Wesley, Deputy Vice Chancellor International at the University of Melbourne, as they explore Frank’s journey as part of the Indian diaspora in Australia. 50 years later, as part of University of Melbourne delegation to India, Michael and Nathan will visit Mussoorie in April to further develop research and educational linkages.
