Four frenzied days. Four great artists.
The Mumbai Portal merges technological and artistic innovation as never before. The traditionally stark container came to life when four creative minds got together to reveal the limits that true passion can reach.
Bound together by their love for the arts and JJ School of Arts background, Ajinkya, Sanskar, Rakesh and Raja, rose to the occasion when they were asked to paint the Portal to reflect its purpose. Almost overnight, symbols of how strong the human spirit is, began appearing on the outsides of the container, painstakingly detailed and illustrated. Here’s a little more about the Mumbai artists that made this possible.
Ajinkya Sutar is a brand ideator and designer at chlorophyll, always looking for an opportunity to collaborate with different artists and experiment with styles, technique and media. He designed the identity for Patna Pirates, a team in India's Pro Kabbadi League, and has illustrated books for the NGO Katha and many others.
Sanskar Sawant is an illustrator and installation artist who has worked with Taxi Fabric, designed a rickshaw in Mumbai and four Electric Delhi rickshaws for the city's Electric Daisy Carnival festival. He travels extensively in India, soaks in the vibe wherever he is and paints countryside homes in return for a room!
Rakesh Kadam, is a mural artist and set designer and built a miniature film set for Tata Sky. He has enjoyed experimenting with different media and materials since childhood which spurred his love for art.
Raja Javir is a mural artist and set designer for various Marathi films and plays. He has painted wall murals for Asian Paints in Pune, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad.
