Monday Murals – Little India

For the last 5 years (started in 2015) there’s been an annual multidisciplinary public art project in Little India calmly ArtWalk Little India and through artworks such as wall murals (what I’m concentrating on here), music, film and performances, artists bring to life history and traditions of Little India.

This piece, Madam Mogra, Jasmine of the City by Nadia Alsagoff was created for the ArtWalk Little India 2017. It’s located in a small alley between Race Course Road and Chandler Road. It’s a tribut to the sacrifices of migrant workers who come to Singapore to work for higher wages. It’s quite a longish artwork, in a very tight alleyway hence not easy to photograph. When I visited I liked that a well placed plant pot making it look like the artwork sprout from there!!
