“I’m okay. Just, you know, sweating,” Leo Bhanji responds as he shifts into the frame, answering a Zoom call from his bedroom in London. Despite commenting on nerves, the 20-year-old appears relaxed as he saunters about his personal space. The UK is in lockdown so being indoors is no surprise, but it’s also where Leo’s most at ease. In some ways, he’s well-suited to the current situation; outside is “too normal” as people begin to reemerge, and the return to creating from the basics serves as a form of comfort to the young artist.
