Hyderabad-based graffiti artist duo, Nikhil Kapur and Chandni Mathur are showcasing at one of Dubai’s largest retail art fair -World Art Dubai. The art festival hosts a collection of more than 3,000 artworks from renowned galleries and solo artists from over 30 countries. Hoozinc Store in Hyderabad enjoys a loyal following among pop culture and graffiti enthusiasts. Their showcase in Dubai is titled, Portrait of a Woman that makes a powerful, thoughtful and evocative statement about gender equality.
“This series is a hyperbolic representation of issues such as gender equality and cultural arrogation, which are important, concerns for the society at large. We believe that art is a powerful medium to propagate change, and in this series, we have created paintings that are bold, provocative, self-explanatory and yet abstract and silent,” said Chandni and Nikhil when we contacted them.
The graffiti represents the strength of women, their different emotions and is an amalgam of the past, the present and the future. They have also been invited to create six murals at the entrance of the festival venue. These Hyderabadi artists are surely going places!
