  • Raise your hand if you love street art 🙋..
.
while exploring the old & narrow street of colaba-mumbai in my recent visit I came across the 3D wall art of black horse 🐎.
.
I know Amidst the swirl & all the chaos of mumbai's slums, filthy streets, high rise towers and buzzing bazaars , it's easy to feel overwhelmed, but when you delve deeper in to the city's narrow and old street you will find creativity of local artists. If you're fan of street art don't forget to checkout the ART hub of MUMBAI at kala Ghoda 🇮🇳...
.
thanks @devdxb for showing me all the cool places & for the 📸. #streetofmumbai
