Ata Mojlish is a multimedia artist who splits his existence between Dhaka, Bangladesh and Austin, Texas. Working with a variety of digital mediums such as photography, digital manipulation, video, motion graphics, audio and 3D; he researches questions on self exploration, displacement, political systems, identity and the perceptions of home.

Mojlish’s work is an effort of enabling the senses that help manifest awareness on some level. Through an invitation of self evaluation, his creations are an attempt to shed light on well hidden parts of him as well the communities that his work belongs to. His artmaking process often starts with concepts that display an accepted definition of reality. They are then reconstructed, lifting the curtain from several versions of the truth that grew a habit of staying suppressed in plain sight.

 

Mojlish is a native of Dhaka, Bangladesh. He received his BSS in Media Studies from the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB). In addition to his art practice, Mojlish also co-founded two distinct Bangladesh based art collectives named Ghartera and Cartoon People. He is currently employed in Austin as a senior graphic designer for the local Texan brand TYLER'S.
