Its important to know the difference between street art and graffiti. Graffiti is specifically associated with hip-hop culture and is normally taken off as soon as it is put up. We can see graffiti everywhere in Mumbai, on countless walls and building sides. Street art is what can be misconceived as graffiti. This is the incredible art we see, pieces of art in public areas on buildings and walls.
People have very different views on graffiti and street art. Some think of it as an act of vandalism, something that is against the law. But what if graffiti was completely legal? Imagine a city covered in the incredible minds of artists, each wall near a train station or a bus stop having a purpose, making a statement. Graffiti could be the most democratic and public form of art. Artists can shed light on important social issues or even just make someone's day a bit better by brightening up the streets!
Mumbai is full of incredible street art, in places like Bandra and Versova. Stepping out and exploring these incredible artists such as Zake, Jheel Goradia or Minzo can open your eyes to a whole side of contemporary Indian art that you never knew of!
