The Mumbai Art Deco Project

The rich architectural heritage of Mumbai inspired me to highlight the lesser-known Art Deco History of the city through bold, minimal illustrations with a palette true to the era of the 1920s-1960s. The illustrations not only highlight the typical exteriors of Bombay Deco buildings, but also point out facts about the founding year, architects and the style of the interiors.

This exercise was the result of an exclusive collaboration with Kuber Shah, an architectural photographer in Mumbai. Read more about the process of creating these illustrations in this feature by MID-DAY, Mumbai.
