I wish my house was painted like this!

Who doesn’t like street art and painted walls with murals?

Thanks to Asian Paints and Start India  and of course Mumbai Instagrammers,  I witnessed some of the finest graffiti artist’s works from around the world, during a photo walk last week.

Each graffiti meant something. Of course the artist has a trillion things in his mind when he composes his art. Tell me what you think these masterpieces convey. Would love to hear your interpretations! 🙂

city struggles?

The murals are painted on walls of houses, private properties, stores, schools, bakeries and inside garages as well

If you wish to see any of these, make sure you read up on the locations , as many of these are not on the main road and can be missed 🙂 The St-Art project  intends to cover Delhi as well. In Mumbai, the street art is displayed in Bandra, Versova and Dharavi.

Note: Apologies for a huge gap. Haven’t been reading posts due to the paucity of time and due to some personal commitments. Would catch up on all the missed posts soon. Lots of love!

  2. Wow… this is some incredible work of art…
    and your effort in capturing all these images and coming up with this story should be well appreciated 🙂
    There was a similar attempt by the government agencies in Bangalore and in most of places, the quality of work was below par.
    Thank you so much for sharing and I’ll make it a point to capture them, when I visit Mumbai, next time 🙂

    1. Thanks a lot Sreejith! 🙂 I am so glad you liked it.

      Beyond mere aesthetics, the street art project provides a platform to these artists to bring their art to our country and encourages local artists as well 🙂

      I am thankful to Mumbai Instagrammers for conducting this photo walk 🙂

      Next time you are in Mumbai, do visit these. They are indeed a delight to see, capture and interpret 🙂

      Cheers!
