Prakriti by Sujata Dharap


The mural is called PRAKRITI the duality Sujata sees in nature, it's ever changing ephemeral quality, where change is the only constant and it's consistent constant cycles of seasons that have been expressed in this image. This balance in nature, it's beauty and the power to coexist is intriguing for me and it's that truth that she tries to seek. 

The wall was created under the Guidance of Artist Sujata Dharap with 10 of her art students, along with 12 of Bharati School students between the age group 13-15.

Jedhe College Wall


As a contribution to the Pune Speaking Walls project IGA Open Studio worked with a target group of children from the Ekalavya Nyasa Trust, Pune. The IGA team partnered with these young artists through a workshop and onsite activity which finally has resulted in a collage of images of young creative minds.

Phase 1 of the workshop was initiated at the Eklavya Nyasa premises with a one day workshop and demonstration with the children to create forms of their imagination and a vision of the Pune city. This built a background to the exciting activity of painting your own city wall and making positive statement.

Phase 2 was an onsite activity with the IGA team and children of Eklavya Nyasa. The children were guided by trained artists from the IGA team to paint on the venue wall to create images of the imagination that the children had already created during workshop. The activity was repeated and then the composition was connected to create a city of dreams of the children of Eklavya Nyasa.
