- I am quoting you from one of your articles online, “While graffiti was once considered a nuisance, it is now a wonderful showcase of alternative art, a sub-culture that sometimes surpasses the mainstream in its fanbase.” – I have 2 questions. 1, Why was it considered a nuisance? 2. How & why did it change?
- Is street art an Indian thing? Where do you see it’s rooted in India?
- What role does space play while making artworks of such huge sizes? Can you share any particular example/case study?
- Borrowing from the St+artindia website, “Indian streets are very unique. They are a microcosm of the millions of diverse voices that co-exist in this vast and wonderful nation of ours.” – How do you pick the subject/theme of what to draw? Both in temporary and permanent structures.
- The cut-out type of work is very dominant in the south of India. What can be learned from it and push the envelop further?
- Can you share a few positives and few negatives while making this street art movement? From establishments, from art creators/lovers and general audience?
- How does street art influence the aesthetics of the overall society/area/community?
You guys are also involved with the ‘Smart Cities’ program and the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’. Can you talk more about it?
- What is the long term future of the St+art movement?
