The PAINTBOX team lives and works in Chennai. An initiative to spruce up our dirty, spat-upon walls and public spaces, Paintbox aims to bring out different strokes of art and performance art onto the streets – be it on the walls, bus stops or pavements. “The love for our city got us to get out and start hands on work in public spaces. Why wait for someone else to make our city beautiful.” With such thought-provoking statements, this fun initiative hopes to bring together art enthusiasts, public space ‘cleaners’ and lovers of aesthetics. The ultimate aim is to slowly expand and hopefully inspire people to start owning their surroundings and in turn create a self-sustaining community.
