Kaila Bhullar (they/she) is an interdisciplinary artist based out the unceded traditional territories of three Local First Nations: the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) tribes.
Bhullar specializes in editing, photography, mixed media, and audiovisual works. With a particular interest in abstraction and digitally-based art forms, they use art-making as an introspective tool that explores various internal psychological and existential dispositions. As a queer and biracial individual, they are interested in analyzing cultural binaries and norms, using their practice as a vessel to bridge the gap between their identity and the mental chaos surrounding being pulled in multiple directions simultaneously; as well as contextualizing the feelings of disconnect and dissociation that arise as a result. These inquiries into the self often manifest as collages of varying forms and mixed media installations, which serve as an extension of the fragmented nature of their being.
