When art speaks for change, the result is overwhelming. Here are ten fabulous examples of campus graffiti for social causes, at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi.
Graffiti – the art of writing/painting on walls – is not yet a big concept in India, though one can see many new young artists picking up from their counterparts in the West, and gearing up for Street Art festivals. Jawaharlal Nehru University, one of the most politically active universities based in New Delhi, follows the tradition of graffiti since ages.
One can find wall art everywhere, ranging from hostel canteens to the university library to various departments. Every inch of JNU walls scream art and highlight social issues which vary from price rise to gender rights, from Naxal politics to international issues such as occupation of Palestine and rise of the global left. The wall art also serves as a running commentary on current affairs in the country and the world. To see and know more about artwork in JNU, check out this page .
