from the palms to actually getting transferred to oil is shown in a very interesting way.
I lost my grandfather when I was about 4year old and I still carry his Richo automatic watch in my bag, Something attaches me to him.
This makes me think about the human association with objects they own... And how after they are gone the objects become the source of remembrance.
The building we were assigned to paint at ukaddam @startindia inspired me inquire in this relationship again, of the man and the objects... The living and the non living, and how the non living holds the living.
We (Me and Deekshita) went to each house of the housing apartment asking people to lend us objects that hold memories, aspirations, emotions or anything else that makes the object special to them.
And we got flooded... With object and there stories. Stories of freedom, friendship, achievement, aspirations, death, disaster, loss and love.
We shot the objects as still life and painted it as realistic as the artistic maturity allowed for. With the help of trivendra krisshna's experience of more than 25 years of mural making.
When I look back at the time this project was happening it felt like an infinite but... TIME IS TIME WAS.

This mural depicts the arrival of a great king which is synonymous with the arrival of good times. With the king portrayed on the left, musical celebrations upon his arrival can be seen painted on the right. Here, music is symbolic of the the restoration of harmony.
The two walls have a dialogue as they compliment each other with the royal blue color to symbolize honesty and trustworthiness, elegance, riches, and sophistication.
The growth of Mumbai from seven separate islands to one of the world's biggest cities can be charted through the lens of landmarks that have come and gone, as well as those that are still standing or are just taking shape. Each of these has left a lasting impression on a city that never stops rising and surging ahead. This is the inspiration behind MUMBAI RISING, a public art initiative by Birla Estates to beautify Mumbai’s iconic P. B. Marg in Worli.
