Tulika Ladsariya is an Indian artist, born in Mumbai- living and working in Chicago. Working with the sentiment of longing, her work explores the footprint left by the invisible labor of the migrant. In a story-telling narrative style- she explores the notion of un-belonging and works to create a space for those who feel ‘othered’ to come together in cross cultural dialogue.
Qualified as a Chartered Accountant, she transitioned to a creative full-time studio practice after her stint working for an auction house in India. She has exhibited at the Hammond Museum NY, Ralph Arnold Gallery- Loyola University, Hyde Park Art Center, Woman-made Gallery, Expo Chicago, Riverside Arts Center, Jamaat Art gallery Mumbai and Art Heritage Gallery New Delhi.
Tulika is the recipient of the South Asian Artists Relief fund, the Make/Together grant from the ATHENA foundation. She has been a resident at the Hyde Park Art Center from 2019-2021
