Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is a visual and performance artist, zombie drag queen – who goes by the Alias Faluda Islam – as well as curator of mixed Pakistani, Lebanese and Iranian descent. He is based in San Francisco, California where he received an MFA in Studio Art at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2016.
Bhutto’s work delves deep into a futurist imagining of South Asia, the Middle East and the larger Muslim world, through a research-based process excavating archives from popular culture. He takes on histories of revolution, resistance and resilience and queers them using his body as a filter through a multi-media practice based primarily in future storytelling.
