Slums of India


Paint, bitumen paint, toilet paper

My work explores the harsh conditions and the environment of the Indian slums. My teacher helped me to find the concepts for the work. Slums of India is a panoramic landscape of different slum areas in India. I covered the canvas with toilet paper and painted over it to show the dirtiness of the slums. The bitumen paint brings out the landscape. I used the black shades with hints of colour to highlight the mood of the painting.
