    Shit is hot.
    I remember back in the day when Mukherjee 356 was killin Bombay with fill ins and wheat pastings. His shit ran until the locals started peeling the posters down and trying to lick the wheat for food. Those were the days.

    to answer several questions:
    vanity- yes i painted temples, but before you flipout, remember India is a whole lot different from here, there is "devotional" graffiti everywhere glorifying radharani, (radhe) in the city i was in and i was just adding style to it, one was an actual permission the first one, and the second and third were basically okayed by locals who treated me to food and company, the only complaint i got was that i couldnt paint it in Devanagari... but they loved it, and i have already heard of locals sketching out letters and putting flowers and nick nacks around my paintings, the lettering is not different from a picture in traditional vaishnava sects... so i was just painting for radharani, krsnas girlfriend.

    sofarok- no i took advice from sonik3000 when i told him i was going to paint rural india, thus using only what the locals could get there hands on in case i sparked some interest with the kids... i bought paint at the local bazaar, and brushes and the hardest thing to find was mineral spirits (thinner) because if you have ever seen indian painting they like their colors real thick and bright.

    It's cool out there the way it's pretty normal to draw and write messages everywhere.
