Art & Culture, Stories from the Street

Your Guide to Street Art

What is this ? Some call it Graffiti, some call it street art. We just find this one  hell of a way of expression. It takes some imagination to paint a wall, not the kind where Saif Ali Khan  paints the walls in those lame.

What is this ?

Some call it Graffiti, some call it street art. We just find this one  hell of a way of expression. It takes some imagination to paint a wall, not the kind where Saif Ali Khan  paints the walls in those lame ads, we are talking some serious creativity here.

Choosing a location

Choose a shop/pan ki dukan/wall with  CPI messages  like the ones claiming that it is the the World’s Biggest Youth Rally.

You can find this graffiti on your way towards ITER College, Jagamara.

Hurdles faced

The greatest bug that can bother you is that individual who is waiting for you to finish your job on the wall, so that he can either spit or pee on it. We had to face such species. Managing through a horde of curious bystanders, on lookers, and Holy-crap-what-are-they-doing acts, we came up with these images.

The shopkeeper who acted as if he owned the wall was a pain to convince. We scammed him with a fake photoshoot. Yep, we can be mean and ruthless. Just keep your eyes open, while traveling towards ITER… it’s impossible to miss.  Our team of artists dared the sun (it wasn’t really sunny) and brainstormed to come up with this.

What’s in a name?

It is a tribute to Bansky. He belongs to England , known for his street art.  Political activist, film director, and painter, Bansky is known for his satirical takes diluted with dark humor on the government. Our first design is inspired by Banksy (we would be Pritam/Anu Mallik if we say its ours)

This is our tribute to the great man who is Re-wryding the rules.

And it is Dedicated to..

ITER College. Since it was our first, and we wanted to make sure we gave something back to the college for playing such a great host.. We gave them a small measure of Vandalism. We are poor, hungry people. What can we possibly give back ? 😉

Lastly, since we believe graffiti is a visual medium and pictures such as these speak thousand more words we’ll let the images do the talking. Adios, till next time.
