Bollywood Art Project: An Indian Graffiti Project

The Bollywood Art Project is one of the many Bandra/ Indian Graffiti Projects that is decorating the walls of India.The walls of Bandra, a small hub in the city of Mumbai, India, are being adorned with street art and graffiti projects that have converted this quaint suburb into a vibrant urbanscape. http://digitalanalog.in/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gifI am really not equipped to give a dissertation of Graffiti in India: how it evolved, what are the cultural synergies of Graffiti and India, and the emergence of it in the ghettos of Bandra. What I know for a fact is that Graffiti is way cool and people dig things that are cool. So, this contemporary art form didn’t take time to reach the streets of Mumbai owing to its coolness. Most of the graffiti done here is not like the works of Banksy; they’re not meant to be an active mouthpiece of rebellion and dissent. Graffiti in India has taken an artistic form and a way to beautify by lanes and dilapidated structures. Is it vandalistic? Not at all; the artists take permission of the owners of the premises like good mamas’ boys. In most cases than not, the owners encourage the artists to take on such projects.

The Bollywood Art Project is one these street art initiatives. Set up as a way to celebrate India’s romanticism with cinema, the Bollywood Art Project wants to commemorate 100 years of cinema in India through its artworks and campaigns. Started by Ranjit Dahiya (I can’t overlook the fact that Ranjit is also the name of a famous villain of ’60s Bollywood) and Tony Peter (can’t think of a Tony in Bollywood), the Bollywood Art Project glorifies the legacy of Bollywood and the fact that it’ll complete 100 years soon. Each artwork is painted in the walls like the style of hand painted posters; another homage to Bollywood where the posters were hand painted by artists.

The Bollywood Art Project’s very first graffiti was made on the film ‘Anarkali’, a movie on the eternal romance of Sameer and Anarkali. It was later followed with a recreation of famous Bollywood icons Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna in Bandstand, Bandra; the latter was a tribute to Rajesh Khanna as he recently passed away. Both the actors are painted on adjacent walls and look prominent depending on a person’s viewing point, very symbolic of the fact that these legendary actors’ greatness is subjective. The Bollywood Art Project really makes the ruined facades of buildings come to life by adding a touch of Bollywood, very similar to how this crippled city looks to Bollywood for its show of strength.
