We all discover our potential differently. While child prodigies recognize their talent from an extremely young age, people sometimes spend most of their adult life looking for that one thing they are passionate about. And for mural artist Sneha Chakraborty, she realized her eureka moment, when she was introduced with a huge wall in the slums of Khar, Mumbai.
And although she has been painting her whole life she never thought of it as a potential career option. But it was that one mural that made her see the world in a different way. The painted wall in the Khar slum became a popular hangout spot for the locals and they made extra effort to keep it clean. This made Sneha Chakraborty understand the power of wall mural. And she hasn’t looked back since.
Painting huge walls across Mumbai and Pune, a lot of Sneha’s work puts forth powerful images of women. From magical landscapes to breathtaking graffiti and calming floral, Sneha’s imagination has no end.
She has also been working on her initiative Let’s Bee Canvas. With this, she is not only trying to make art accessible and a mainstream career choice. But also educate people about mental health. She also hosts multiple workshops including acrylic, pen & ink and of course street art. These workshops are designed to relax and enjoy the creative process.
