for the 2014 edition of the wall art festival in india, japanese artist yusuke asai has covered a primary school classroom in maharashtra in an intricate and hypnotizing mural made with mud. using water and soil from the surrounding site, asai and a team of over 50 local and international volunteers painted the ceiling and walls in a rich and expressive artwork called ‘sprouting life in the forest-fatherly tree, motherly mountain’.

a bright blue hue serves as the background for the bronze-colored paints applied to the walls. various motifs and symbols from animals to people are abstractly illustrated in whimsical and dramatic compositions throughout the space. the students will see the process of the artists at the school where they study, bringing them closer to creativity and their community. the annual event is co-organized by the japan foundation which aims to form bonds between india and japan and art by supporting and nurturing cross cultural exchange.

  • Outstanding. The freedom of style as indicated by the Artist Yusuke Asai San in this mural will translate to ‘open freer thinking’ in the minds of the Students. I love this. This is constructive art at its peak. Artist Yusuke Asai San should be commended highly.
