Street Art conveys the values of a culture. Walking through India I can see the imagination of her people. Artist illuminate and bring the inner world to the surface so society can take benefit. This is why when I was painting and bombing the streets as a graff writer I eventually came to the realization that painting my own name was superficial and didn’t really benefit anyone besides my own ego. I never stopped painting but now I’m more interested in painting and creating something which inspires a greater sense of reverence. Love and respect. Hopefully these photo convey that Love.

We met and hung out with some amazing Sadhu’s in Tiruvanamalai at the Shiva Temple. We sat and discussed yoga as pilgrims made there way in through the side gate of the Temple. Dig the angle, no photoshop necessary. Photos by Surendar, Binsky & Ram
Here’s some snap shots from the side of the great Shiva Temple. The Arunacahala Shiva Temple in Tiruvanamalai, South India is one of the oldest and most famous Shiva Temples in the world. The “gopurams” or towers stand 216 feet, or 20 stories tall.
Benares or Varanasi is considered one of the most ancient and sacred cities in the world. Built on the banks of the holy river Ganges, it is one of the most revered Pilgrimages in India. Photos by Surendar Kshatriya
