The Aravani Art Project is a Women and Trans-Women art collective, which involves a collaborative public and wall art project to raise voice and awareness of the friendship between Trans-women and Women in public spaces.
We create safe spaces for alternate voices through art. We examine their spaces of innovation, the places of their history and create room to learn by transforming this knowledge into public art. The streets are a particularly important place to do our work, as it is in these public spaces that the bodies of Transgender identifying people attract violence, harassment, social negligence and pressure.
Our creative collective seeks to respond to these experiences by creating spaces that instead encourage exchange, discussion, openness and debate surrounding gender identities.
As an art practice, the women from the community paint portraits of all the walls we have painted before, recording their history, culture, portraits and the everyday.
These canvases as the pictures show below are available in two sizes:
- A3 and A4 canvas board excluding shipping costs.
- Prices for bulk orders may differ, send us an email to inquire.
- Please email us to see more design options and order.
Note: All the canvases are hand painted, acrylic on canvas, to order by trans women from India who work for the Aravani Art Project, the design copyright hence lies with the Aravani Art Project
