Moosehead dude cycles into Bandra!

Anyone who has wandered around the streets of Bandra can’t help but stumble across some rather remarkable art on building walls, hidden along winding lanes, tucked away on the corner of a convenience stall.

Multiple arts projects find home in this western suburb of Bombay… one of the more recent was part of the Celebrate Bandra festival where St+art brought together a mix of Indian and international artists to create a new series of murals to brighten the buildings of Bandra…

This one was immediately a favourite! There is something so quirky and appealing about this crazy guitar and fish totting bicycle dude that I can’t help but smile every time I go past it!

Created by German illustrator Dome, it is entitled ‘Coming Home’.

My pet name for it is ‘cool bicycle moosehead dude!’ With an extra tongue in cheek for the Moosehead reference which hearkens to a well-known Canadian brewskie! (better known as beer for the non-Canucks out there!)

If you are swinging through Bombay, you can find this mural at Diamond Arc Building on Saint John Baptist Road, near Salt Water Cafe, not far from Mount Carmel Church in Bandra Reclamation.

  1. the moose-head is very cool indeed. i love well done murals (as opposed to some shitty graffiti), they do brighten a city and make some totally boring buildings/places so much more memorable

    Might have known the first guy would be German! Berlin has some great street art too 🙂

  3. Love cool bicycle moosehead dude! And love this little peak into a Mumbai I never knew existed, or would have thought of.

    • There are literally hundreds all over Bandra alone plus more in other parts of the city. It has become a stamp of pride and always evolves. I’ve used several photos of them in my posts in the past just thought it would be good to write an actual post or two about them. 🙂

    I saw a large graffiti of a young lass holding a red rose painted on a building in near 60feet road…it was signed ‘Gomez’…
