Omar Bhat

Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Kashmir
Omar Bhat is a sculptor and multimedia artist based in Pulwama, Kashmir. Provoked by government efforts to displace tribal people from their homes, he decided to use visual art as a form of resistance, making suppressed voices heard through his work. His art incorporates quotidian objects that symbolize displacement. His mediums include POP, acrylics, clay, found objects, wood, and metal.
Bhat received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award for a project highlighting the forced displacement of tribal people in Kashmir, as well as to buy art materials for the children and teens of tribal communities.
