Bhuwan Sil­hare presents 24 of the city’s most pop­u­lar mon­u­ments in a se­ries of acrylic paint­ings ti­tled ‘Mum­bai 26x7’. How­ever, he chooses to de­pict land­marks like the Gateway of In­dia and Vic­to­ria Ter­mi­nus mi­nus the clut­ter of bill­boards and neon signs. “Thou­sands of peo­ple throng past these iconic struc­tures but none of them have the time to stop and ad­mire the ar­chi­tec­tural won­ders,” says Sil­hare, who put in months of work in the paint­ings. “I con­sciously pre­sented these struc­tures in their orig­i­nal glory with­out the scars of the ur­ban land­scape.”
