The graffiti’s and street art on the walls of Chapel Road, one of the oldest roads in Bandra, have had many a head roll back. Our lens in Mumbai brings for you a special dekko, for as long as you want!
With street art on most of the walls, this road seems to look like an open canvas, to many people. A work of multiple artist throughout the globe, from the famous ones to the locals too, every art piece has an emotion hidden inside; comical, serious, nostalgic or a world of fantasies to live through.
Let’s start with graffiti’s on the walls of the local residents on chapel road. People being such art lovers allowing the artists to draw their hearts out on the walls of their houses.
It’s not just letters and words that cover the walls of chapel road one can also find fantasy creatures looking at you. A three eyed raven glaring at me.
Bollywood art project (B.A.P) “An urban art initiative that aims to transform the walls in Mumbai into a living memorial to Bollywood”.

Shandaar, Zabardast, Zindabaad most of us know these three iconic words delivered from our very own Mountain Man from Bollywood, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. One of the walls on chapel road has these words with a portrait of this very talented actor on it. It’s my favourite wall.
It was my lucky day that I had a chance of clicking such good art works on the eve of world photography day I hope these walls of Bandra never go colourless and people keep them painted.
