Known for making monochromatic murals depicting anonymous personalities around the world, Germany based artist ecb Hendrik beikirch’s latest mural was recently completed in New Delhi for the excellent St+Art India event.
Upon seeing his site which is an extremely industrial setting of a now defunct cement factory – next to one of the largest landfills of the city, Ecb felt the area was lacking a human touch. He decided to make a large scale portrait of an average Indian person who frequents the area everyday – to reflect the constant struggle of the rag pickers and truckers who work day and night in the area, but yet remain unknown. This mural was completed in 4 days and can be found at ICD.
