This Wall Is A Masterpiece by Mohd. Intiyaz
An original painting by Mohd. Intiyaz.
As soon as you cross the road, you can see big houses, clean and tidy streets. A wall with bright colors and pretty pictures divides the two sections. The people from the big houses think, “What an act of charity! That group ventured to the other side where things are not so pretty and made it pretty with their paint.” Then one day, men in uniform came and told us to vacate the place. Nobody who made or called the wall so pretty said a thing. But our people united and responded to the order with our loudest voice.

Mohd. Intiyaz is a visual artist originally from Jharkhand, but migrated to Delhi due to unrest and uncertainty. In Delhi, he attained an MFA in Painting from Jamia Millia Islamia University. In 2018, his art was displayed at the Kochi Muziris Student Biennale, and was chosen as a resident artist for the prestigious Khoj Peers program in 2019. Subsequent years he was a resident artist with Art for Change and 1Shantiroad.
Mohd Intiyaz's works are highly personal and focus on firsthand experiences of migration and marginalization. His core memory of the past and his exposure to everyday occurrences in his neighborhood are central themes of his artwork, rooted in a sometimes uncomfortable reality. Through his work he narrates situations that most of his viewers will not personally encounter - and in doing this, he makes sure that nothing is forgotten.
