Artist Uses Mud and Dirt to Create Sprawling Paintings on School Walls in India

Using different types of local mud, dirt and dust, Japanese artist Yusuke Asai created an immersive mural that covered the walls and ceiling of a school classroom in a remote village in India. The sprawling, indoor paintings were created for the Wall Art Festival, an annual gathering of Indian and Japanese artists who spend around 20 days at the Niranjana School in Sujata Village, Bodh-Gaya, and produce wall art using the walls of the school building as canvas.

Guerrilla graffiti artist Banksy is believed to be behind a new mural which recently appeared on a wall in Cheltenham, England near the headquarters of the Government’s intelligence agency, GCHQ. The artwork depicts three men dressed as 1950s spies in trademark trenchcoats and sunglasses spying on various phone conversations. The new mural comes in the wake of the storm over surveillance and the NSA revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
