The Great wall of Mumbai
No! This is not in any way, similar to ‘Great Wall of China’, this is a wall of artistic spirit of the people of Mumbai who care and it may look like this….
Or the way you make it look, maybe more artistically.
On 15th and 16th August, The Wall Project along with the BMC is initiating painting sessions on the Tulsi pipe Road, stretching from Mahim to Dadar running along the western railway line in Mumbai. This will be the biggest canvas ever to be made available
When people get creative, the results are amazing…..want to try your imagination???
A humble project that started out with a few enthusiastic people is growing to be a bigger, better project.
The wall project started with a blank white compound wall, with an intense burning of “something has to be done to it”. Set in an old East Indian village in Bandra, colorful with people of many talents, all hidden in their tiny abodes.
It was an initiative to add visual elements of color, form and texture to a space, to make the area more alive and generate a feeling among people who pass by it daily.
So make yourself free and come over to Tulsi Pipe road and see the fun…paint the city with rainbow colors……

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
