Power Box Street Art Project, Caroline Springs, Victoria, Australia. 2019
PROJECT: POWER BOX STREET ART MELTON CITY
GROUP: INDIAN SERVICE CLUB
Location: Caroline Springs Library, 193-201 Caroline Springs Blvd, Caroline Springs VIC 3023
The Indian Service Club is a vibrant community that encourages and fosters the development of Indian languages and culture within the Australian context. It fosters communication between the Indian community and the broader community by organising cultural, sporting and social activities for all. It currently has around 60 members.
The Indian Service Club community helps members to live and share happiness together. This work is inspired by Indian dancing, an easily shared source of joy in the community, which can break down language barriers. It depicts characters dancing, playing music and enjoying their life together. Hands feature heavily in 2choey’s designs – especially the use of hands as heads. The hot colour shades like red, orange and yellow are reminiscent of the heat and colour in India – especially evident in Indian clothes and foods. All sides of the design connect without a beginning or end, showing that everyone in the group is connecting with each other.
