Call for artists who can help to beautify our city and giving it a voice. I guess they will be needing volunteers for other works too except design or paint so interested people should avail this opportunity to give back to the city.

    I don’t understand why they want the artist to clean the walls of Karachi…do they think the artists have vandalized and graffitied….and even if they did….don’t you think the car wash boys could do this job much better and quicker….!can we do it paint or repaint somebody’s wall without asking…?

    employing Carwash boys would require resources,
    while the above movement is asking people to Volunteer for it !

    Well Graffiti can be painted on somebodies wall, then we can repaint it also, No Owner in his right mind would mind it,

    Anyways the more effected walls in Karachi are either Public, or Commercial, so this wouldn’t be a problem.

    @syed johny sab….sir have you seen the walls of kashmir lawns on the kashmir road….they were painted with graffiti by artists of karachi when an international festival was held there…I am sure every body at KMB remembers it….they don’t look very nice and beautiful to me…
    what do you guys have against a nice clean walls with no distractions …?aren’t the aesthetically challenged mega billboards all over the city enough…..

    Art or Plain Walls whatever it be they don’t look ugly. Paan ki peeks, political slogan and impotent ishtaharaat does. At least they are planning to do something, not just sitting and criticizing everyone =D

    sorry i didnt read the comments of the author,
    If they are calling people to create more Graffiti then its useless,

    (By Definition Graffiti is a form of Art.)

    in last initiative under I own Karachi they did not create art, they covered Graffiti walls with plain paint! and i was referring to it. :)
