Modern wall sculptures in India are more than just art: They also bring jobs
By SANDRA MAHAKARALAGA and ANU RUPATHANAP | Published March 09, 2020 06:02:30The Modern Wall sculpture project has brought some major jobs to India, including in construction, landscaping and other industrial and commercial sectors.
It also has added to the popularity of the country’s iconic art and has provided a platform for artists to promote their work internationally.
The Modern wall sculpture project started in 2009 in Bangalore.
Now it has a network of artists and makers that are involved in the project.
This month, they will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the project in the city of Pune, where they have a booth.
In the city, the artists have been busy painting murals on the wall, and have also been able to create murals of their own.
They are working on the theme of “Dalit women and art”, with the intention of creating a portrait of the Dalit woman.
The mural of a Dalit man, created by the artist Keshav Bhat, has also been commissioned by the city.
The work will be displayed at the Pune museum.
“We have chosen this particular artist as his work has an uplifting and uplifting message, and the message of the painting is that there is no need to be ashamed or discriminated against,” said Vijay Kumar, a city-based member of the Modern Wall Artists Association (MWA).
The mural depicts an Indian Dalit male with a scarf covering his face.
“There is a lot of pride in this painting.
It brings hope to people that there are people in the world who care about us.
We are proud of this painting,” said Kumar.
The artwork was created by local artist Kishore Khatuva.
“The idea of this mural is to celebrate our Dalit heritage and the achievements of our women.
We also want to highlight the importance of diversity in the art form and art as a medium.
Our hope is that this painting will help to raise awareness about our history,” said Khatukal.
For Khatruva, it was the painting of the sculpture that really caught his attention.
“It has a message that brings people together, which is an inspiration for everyone,” he said.
The art project is a collaboration between the MWA, the MWA, and a local art gallery.
“Since the mural is part of a larger project, it is a very important part of our programme,” said the artist.
The artists hope to be able to bring the work to more places and regions in the coming months.
The project is part part of the MDA’s efforts to develop the art and art culture of India.
