Color Me New: The Mumbai Wall Project
It all started with a blank compound wall in the leafy Mumbai suburb of Bandra.
It all started with a blank compound wall in the leafy Mumbai suburb of Bandra. In early 2008, a group of enthusiastic creative souls set out with paints and brushes and a determined feeling that ‘something has to be done to this.’
Since then, the group has expanded to cover locations across Mumbai, even tying up with the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation). Involving more Mumbaikars, the project has allowed enthusiasts to show up armed simply with an idea to paint a 5km stretch of road along one of Mumbai’s busiest roads. Paints, brushes and even refreshments were provided.
