THIS warms my heart. Spanish street artist Escif traveled to Goa in an attempt to combat the prevailing negative stigma against street art in India. Escif offered to paint murals of ‘whatever you want’ outside local shops for free.
Like this portrait of Mr. Shivadatta. When Mr. Shivadatta passed away his wife Ms. Shivadatta took over his shop. She asked Escif to paint a portrait of her late husband on the facade.
The owner of Hotel Cafe Prasao Restaurant asked Escif to paint a big Veghi Talhi on their facade.
This space was shared by two women who ran a stamp shop and dental clinic. They asked Escif to paint teeth on the facade to market their dental services a little bit better.
The owner of Panjim Garage asked Escif to paint something “well”. But because of Escif’s poor English he understood it as “wheel”.
Fatima and her husband recently opened a candelabrum shop, and thus asked Escif to paint a candelabra.
