Contemporary street artist Avinash Kumar’s “Three Shades of Tamil Nadu,” is a large-scale wall mural that pays vibrant homage to the rich and diverse culture of Tamil Nadu. This three-panel masterpiece artfully captures the essence of the region, exploring its multifaceted heritage. Avinash’s work masterfully interweaves elements that depict Chennai and its cultural tapestry. The artwork features a striking Bharatanatyam dance pose, a nod to the state’s profound association with this classical dance form.
