Azadpur Market, Delhi, India
2015

This piece is part of the “Mediocre” series. Its painted in the Azadpur fruit and vegetable market. It considered to be the biggest market in Asia. A tumultuous area with a mix of the humming from beeping cars from the main road the heaover metro line above it, the people from the Azadpur Mosque right next to it, a family of monkeys that would come to visit me every asides from the goats, chicken, pigs and cows that lived there, and the vendors and buyers in the street.

The wall is painted over the Delhi Cold Storage and next to the Azadpur Mosque.

The mural depicts my interpretation of a still life. One of the most recurred themes in the history of classical painting. This piece talks about the life in the market.

Special thanks to Mahesh Chand for his help, to St-art Festival for organizing and to the people from the market for their hospitality.
