MISAAL MUMBAI PROJECT
“Misaal Mumbai” is an initiative by Artist Rouble Nagi. It started with Paint Dharavi in 2012 and now in Bandra west along with numerous sites in Mumbai.
We will be painting over 285 plus houses in Jaffar Baba Colony, Mount Mary, Bandra West. We will be doing this with the help artists, locals and residents. We have trained some of the younger volunteers from art colleges in painting workshops and ended up employing 25 students to finish the project in less than two months.
The result will be an explosion of rainbow hues that would be visible from far away, stretching from one dwelling to the next in a wave of unexpected energy.
It is a quick way to create visual impact. Our projects will also employ people and give them a sense of ownership over the artworks they create in their own community while improving the condition of their houses.
Street art opens a window for discussion and some positive news from places. Colourful surroundings will change the lives of the local community. The main goal is to give life to the slum and keep it clean and hygienic. Everything will be bright and colourful. We merely want to create interventions, that hopefully ignite some other change.
In the end, we hope our Project “ MISAAL MUMBAI” will help others to set up projects of their own, be it Mumbai or anywhere else in India. Its the first slum painting initiative in India, hope you will be a part of it. We have painted more than 43000 homes till date and are currently working in over 63 slums across India.
