A quintessential urban phenomenon, street art has become an integral part of urban spaces and graffiti is gaining immense popularity in India. It's a form of art that is ever changing and totally unpredictable The workshop conducted by Joyston Vaz will be spread over three days.
Participants will work together on a graffiti wall and learn that there's more to graffiti than just a spray can! The workshop will also discuss how graffiti evolved into an art form, and explain the different mediums of graffiti art.
Joyston Vaz, also known as Jcvaz is an independent contemporary artist from Chennai, who has been painting from the age of four. He says he is happiest when he is elbows deep in paint. He is self taught and prefers the non conventional art forms such as neo-graffiti, photorealism and surrealism. His pieces are inspired by whatever catches his eye.
In August 2009 with the help of a few like-minded friends and a lot of paint, he set up his first commercial venture, Coloured Particles. He has since been transforming the spaces of homes and offices across Asia into multi-dimensional pieces of art, shaping their environment without constraints into artistic reflections of themselves.
He now endeavours to create wearable art, and liveable art to enrich our lives with.
Joyston also conducted the graffiti Workshop at the Indo-German Urban Mela in Chennai.
