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!)
