13. Daily Delivery by JABA
We’ll round off this list where we started — with a JABA work! Taking up the entire wall of a two-storey shophouse, this huge piece is titled “Daily Delivery” and features JABA’s signature futuristic take on the traditional tiffin trade aka the original food delivery service.
A tribute to the delivery drivers that brave the traffic on their carts to deliver fresh ingredients and food to the restaurants and people of Little India, this mural contains a fictional narrative of the future in Little India. The man carrying tiffins, or stacked metal containers with food, pedals a cart that is really a hovercraft in disguise. In fact, all the antiquated vehicles hover above the ground, in a juxtaposition of tradition and modernism in Little India. If you look closely, you can make out that the wheels of the cart are also equipped with turbo-engines!
Unlike museums and galleries, street art has the distinction of being accessible to everyone, so what better time to plan an art tour around Little India than this Deepavali? Grab your posse of (up to four) friends and head down because nothing beats seeing these works for yourself.
Do remember to observe the appropriate social distancing and safety measures for a safe and enjoyable street art experience!
