The Wall Project Mumbai – Street Art in India
Photos of The Wall Project in Mumbai, India.
The Wall Project Mumbai, in Mumbai, India, began as a way for artists, both professional and amateur, to to add color to the drab suburban walls around the Bandra area of the city. While the guidelines of the street art project prohibit advertising, political statements, religious content or obscene messaging, much of the colorful graffiti pushes those limits. Most of the vibrant murals in The Wall Project depict personal stories and dreams, the artist’s desire for change and hope for the future of Mumbai, and criticisms and frustrations over the state of the world.
On one of our last days in India, after taking a slum tour in a nearby area, Jaime and I explored a stretch of the public art. The vivid hued outdoor gallery sharply contrasted against all of the brown and gray surroundings.
These are photos from the most concentrated and vibrant area of street art the 2km stretch along Senapati Bapat Marg (Tulsi Pipe Rd). You can learn more about The Wall Project and see more stories behind the art as new works are created at the project’s official Facebook page and website.
