Many innocent lives are lost in this country to potholes. The pothole menace is a grave concern and yet govt apathy makes one wonder if there will ever come a day where our roads would be clean and clear of potholes. It is a sad reality we live in today. But it is important we raise our voice, especially in a democracy. It becomes imperative for law-abiding citizens to demand their basic rights. Like this one artist, who has been relentlessly channeling his energy and art to provoke the govt to act.
Remember the picture of the life-sized crocodile in the middle of a road trending throughout the internet after civic authorities failed to repair a pothole?
Baadal Nanjundaswamy, 36, a visual artist from Bangalore, famous for his 3D painting and street art, turned a 12-feet long gigantic pothole on the Sultanpalya Main Road in the city into a living ground for a life-sized crocodile, in an attempt to bring it to the attention of the Bangalore municipal corporation.
His art highlighted a pothole which has been staring at people on the road for a while now and he took it upon himself to show the administration's apathy towards civic issues faced by residents on a daily basis.
Nanjundaswamy has been making art around current civic issues for the past decade. He not only makes art around potholes and dysfunctional road situations, but also murals and has been a part of street art projects like ST+ART India.
His latest project was in Mysore, recently, where he was trying to spread awareness about a manhole and dengue, which has been spreading far and wide in the city.
Well, bad roads in the country are calling out to artists like Nanjundaswamy, we hope he spreads his wings to other parts of the country so we can raise awareness and bring it to the attention of the authorities.
