Wall Art / Freshworks 
Commissioned wall art in Chennai.

The new expansion had very high walls. These are the largest walls I have painted so far, each larger than 1200 square feet. Owing to the vast space the architect decided to create an indoor - industrialized feel with grunge carpets coupled with shipping containers. 

Consequently this became the theme I had to work with. For one space I recreated the process of manufacturing. Aligning with the idea of the company manufacturing products that made their customers happy. The second space was inspired by old machines, flying ships and PS3 games. I painted a large flying ship taking over the skies flanked on all sides by smaller cities in the sky. It represented Freshworks global expansion across different countries. 
Manufacturing happiness.
This wall had many different elements that had to be created. Different materials were used in the process. 
Before beginning the execution - the measurements, requirements and budgets all had to be checked thoroughly.
It took more than a month of planning to prepare the design and its elements.
My artwork was mapped to the architects elevation plan. There were separate diagrams made for every individual element. 
Sampling the colours.
After trying out more than 17 colours, this is what we chose. All these colours correspond to different Freshworks products. 
'The Happiness' on this wall is depicted through a customized 'rainbow' palette.

Rough sketches for the design.
Fixing the design, the colours, and matching the shades.
I worked on this wall single handedly. And switched my timings to the night shift. It would be more peaceful, less noisy and dusty. 
Since I had to work using an industrial ladder at heights of 22 feet on some days, I preferred to be alone so I could concentrate without worrying about too many people being around.
Working on different levels of the ladder.
It was a full length artwork, spanning over 1200 square feet. Hence it had to be completed before the office was even setup. 
Adding touch-ups and redoing the outlines of the artwork.
