Pune, March 8: With an aim to change the mindset of people, a Mumbai-based artist painted the streets of Pune city in Maharashtra under the 'Misaal Mumbai' initiative. Under the initiative, the artist, Rouble Nagi, who is also a founder of NGO Rouble Nagi Art Foundation said she wants to connect to people through art. "Our main aim is not to colour the walls but bring a change in their mindset", she was quoted by ANI.
"When I paint 20 walls here, 200 people come & stand with me. I go to their home as a social activist and try to help, they'll have that speculation that who is she. So we start with colouring, they come out of their homes, & that's when we tell them what we want to do", Nagi added.
