Bazik Thlana


Bazik Thlana (b. 1990, based in Aizawl, Mizoram and New Delhi) is a visual artist and an academic researcher from Mizoram, based in New Delhi. Lalthlanchhuaha a.k.a. Bazik Thlana defines himself as a socially conscious eccentric – owning a conscious refusal of a centrally defined axis as well as an unconventionality to his practice. Precariously positioned between urban living and tribal roots, his work draws inspiration from the unique space he occupies. Thlana narrates his personal journey of coming of age and comments on political injustice like the central narrative of inept inclusion. His approach often comments on the need to look closer and examine, to take the time to inspect and appreciate a culture and people that are often forgotten in the broader scheme of things.
