After creating his sprawling mural for the Niranjana School in Bahar, east India, back in 2011, the Wall Art Festival invited Yusuke Asai back to India for another project. Earlier this year in February Asai travelled to a primary school in the village of Maharashtra , belonging to the tribe people of Warli. There, in a classroom, Asai created “Sprouting life in the forest -Fatherly Tree, Motherly Mountain.”
Created from soil that was found in the village, Asai depicted a immersive ecosystem that revolved around themes dealing with the birth of life. Asai also asked the local students to contribute to his painting. They left their mark by creating mud hand-prints that were then turned into birds.
The Wall Art Project is organizing another new project later this year. “Earth Art Project” will take place in Ladakh, in the Himalayan area this coming July and
August. It will be an art exhibition involving the nomadic people there at an altitude of 15000 feet. You can learn more about the project and the participating artists.
