From the Darkness of Ignorance to the Light of Knowledge.
Shree Ram Welfare Society School in Andheri West has, in the process of inspiring teachers, parents and especially students., created a landmark in yhus premier suburb of Mumbai.
A 53 ft high wall mural that is 30 feet across draws immediate attention to the school even to passers-by on the main stretch of this leafy by-lane. Conceived and executed by Artist Murali Raman and his team from The Terribly Tiny StudyO,
this visual metaphor has a simple story to relate.
The layered narratives here – the kids determinedly climbing up the wall of a huge notebook and pulling down the page to reveal the brilliant light of knowledge is parallel to the dark, confused, ignorant, state of mind giving way to a glorious dawn in a radiant sky…and the brilliant sun dispels all fears, imparts knowledge and gives confidence.
The role of parents and teachers is also shown.
The treatment is a stylized ode to this artist’s favourite legendary master – Vincent Van Gogh.
