Legality of Graffiti in India

Graffiti has been there since the ancient times of human civilization. In that time it existed in the form of stone paintings and wall inscriptions. In the 1960’s, graffiti became very popular. But the explosion of Hip-Hop culture in the 1990’s has brought graffiti to where it is today. As in developed countries, graffiti in India is illegal if done without the consent of the wall owner. But that is where a major difference lies. In India, it’s much easier to find people who are willing to let an artist ‘decorate’ their walls. This happens in urban areas where people are persuaded by the proposition of getting a beautiful mural done on their walls completely free of cost. One such example is Khirki Village in Delhi where walls are open canvases for Indian and overseas graffiti artists.
