Wall Art Close To My Heart

April Six Word Photo Story Challenge: “Graffiti & Street Art”

I Just Had to Show Off!

This wall is at my son’s college campus at IISER, Mohali India, where he completed his BSMS dual degree. In their fourth year, he took Visual Art as one of his elective subjects, thinking it would be easy since he had four major core subjects (math). Little did he know that it would prove to be a lot more work than he anticipated! I mean, they had charcoal sketching, tie-dye printing, visits to nearby pottery villages, making collages, Madhubani art classes, and much more.

The silver lining, of course, was that he enjoyed the course. One of their group projects was to beautify their eight-storey hostels’ (dorm) outer walls. There are four buildings in all bordering a huge ground in the middle, which has a basketball court, grassy lawns, and lovely benches to enjoy the sun.

Four groups and four walls. This two-storey-high wall in the picture is my son’s group’s effort. He painted three of the largest waves. 🥰 I have some lovely photos of him posing against the wall and also working on it. Can you imagine my joy when I visited the campus and actually got to look at it? So proud!

And of course, I loved it a little more because of the coffee cup theme! Definitely makes the wall look lovelier!

Thank ye, O Mary Chang Story Writer for this fantastic prompt. I am loving your photos for this challenge, along with all the fab photos by other participants!
