Graffiti is not a big phenomenon in India, yet. However, with the rising power of personal opinion and visual expression, it has definitely made a promising mark. Cities like Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore have welcomed this phenomenon with open canvases!
1. Flying Munki - Prison Hostel, Goa
With city-dwellers flocking to Goa for their getaway, the Flying Munki graffiti outside Prison Hostel in Anjuna, Goa is an easy catch! While driving past the road, these 3 brightly painted monkey faces not only turn heads but also lead them to a world of interpretation.
2. Shhh - Baroda, Gujarat
This wall art by Bong UFO (Pseudonym used by the artists) stands in the middle of the city screaming the truth that is ticking everyone’s temper – Shhh! In a country where traffic and horn sounds have saturated the air, this stern-faced man demands silence.
3. Hope - Ahmedabad, Gujarat
This is yet another masterpiece from BONG. It was created for Winter on Wheels, a truck journey across India for the homeless people of Jammu and Kashmir.
4. Conquer The Concrete - Chennai
This was created as a part of the ‘Conquer the Concrete’ street art festival that took place in Chennai. Places across Chennai got an artistic makeover with a tinge of reality.
5. Buddha & Ganesha - Kolkata
This is an imaginative translation of a moment of slumber shared by Buddha and Ganesha that was created in Kolkata. Its mystic nature adds to the impact!
