Interesting write-up of a photographer’s work on explicit graffiti in Bombay’s commuter rail lines (an example of which I’ve posted above — taken about a year ago when the hub and I visited a friend in Mumbai) — Chirodeep exhibited some of his pieces at the city’s Kala Ghoda Arts Festival.

This was the tenth year of the Kala Ghoda event; a full listing of artists and workshops is here. A blog chronicling some of the work from the festival is still being maintained — and added to — which takes the fest to a new level; even though I’m no longer in India, I can get a feel for Kala Ghoda’s heady, artistic atmosphere. If that’s not enough, there are some great pictures at Fractal Enlightenment.

Man. Wish I could have gone.

Well, until July, that is. I can’t wait for the installation of four waterfalls around New York’s waterfront, a project to be carried out by Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and backed by the city and the Public Art Fund. Call me a faddist (Yo, Christo! J-C! Loved the Gates!) or easily impressed, but something about ambitious, aggressive displays of art out in the open just makes my heart race.
