Street Graphics in India

Street art in India is now a dying art because of digitalization and development of print media. it is chiefly characterized by loud and solid colours complemented by textures, decorative elements, perspective, shadows and so on. It chiefly consists of, vehicle art, signboards, political posters, hoardings, advertisements, film publicity etc.

Through action research and interviews, we intend to find out more about this art and trace people who earn their living through this art. We want to find out their stories, techniques, how their business was in the past and how it is now. We also wish to explore and document as much of hand done street art as possible. Through this, we want to bring out the value of street art.
