The year 2013 marks 100 years of Indian Cinema and to celebrate this momentous occasion the Bollywood Art Project team is painting the city in all hues of Bollywood. The project that will continue till 2013 has already begun, and their first creation is a massive 11ft X 15ft mural of the ancient Indian film Anarkali (1953) at Chapel Road in Bandra. Completed just a few days ago, the mural has already become the talk of the town.
At the heart of Bollywood Art Project or BAP is Ranjit Dahiya, Bollywood poster artist and Tony Peter, animation designer. They are joined by Mallika Chabba, Swati Rao and Shruti Visweswaran, who together spent two weeks creating this beautiful mural of Anarkali, featuring Bina Rai and Pradeep Kumar. The BAP team has come together to pay tribute to legends of Indian Cinema by converting the faded walls in the city with larger-than-life hand painted Bollywood posters, film screenings and open house discussions with cinephiles nationwide.
BAP kickstarts the celebrations with the screening of Anarkali at the same spot on Chapel Road, Bandra on 12th May at 7 p.m. on the wall adjoining the mural. The screening of this Bollywood classic will be free for all, followed by an interesting discussion on Indian Cinema. The BAP team shall also reveal the location of their next mural in the city, post this screening.
The Bollywood Art Project team is keen on collaborations and is inviting artists to join them in their mission of honoring 100 years of Indian Cinema. If you wish to be a part of the BAP team, get in touch with Mallika on 9892742563 or drop an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. If you’ve already made a visit to Chapel Street and admired Bollywood Art Project’s effort, don’t forget to share your views or pictures with us at email@example.com. We’d love to publish them.
