This one of a kind event will feature 6 stunning artists as they paint the canvas live in front of the shoppers at the mall in an endeavor to let people see for themselves the talent and skills of people with disabilities. Each artist has chosen a theme to focus upon out of the broader topic of Global Warming and we hope it radically raises awareness on this critical subject.

Thyagraj likes to believe that his rich heritage and atmosphere filled with passionate art lovers made him fall in love with art as well. His locomotor disability did not hinder him from pursuing his one true love that is painting. His canvas will feature the issue of Overpopulation.

Aishwarya A is a professional animator. What started as a hobby for her is now her full time profession. She shares her passion with other people by conducting workshops and events. For this event, she will share her perspective on Deforestation through her artwork. 


As the passersby notice these artists with disabilities paint their canvas with such dedication and passion, they will realize the true potential of a person with disability wielding a paint brush. This event will help us take one big leap towards inclusion and paint the future with endless possibilities for growth and acceptance in the society.
