A vision and painting supplies are all you will need to channel your inner Mario Miranda this weekend.
With a two kilometre-long canvas along Tulsi Pipe Road from Mahim to Dadar, both amateurs and professionals can paint their visions of Mumbai on concrete walls as part of a wall painting event, The Mumbai Wallbook, on Sunday. The artists, who can paint individually or in groups, will be judged for creativity and execution.
"This is an initiative to beautify the defaced city walls by creating beautiful, theme-based paintings," said Rajeeb Dash, member of the organising team.
"It will give Mumbaiites an opportunity to express themselves as well as give a positive message to society about what they would want their city to look like, through art."
"My vision of Mumbai is based on times I spent here as a child in the 1980s - fewer vehicles, reduced pollution and more greenery," said Shankar Vaidya, 36, a budding artist based in Vile Parle, who plans to sign up for the event.
"I will create a black-and-white painting to convey the glorious past of the city.
