A walk through the alleyways of City Market that bustles with life while listening to stories of Kempe Gowda, what the area was intended to be, how the market came into existence and how it transformed over the years while Ullas points us to walls that he wanted to paint these stories on.
Ullas Hydoor, trained as an architect who then went on to become the artist that he is today - is perhaps the ideal person to take us on this journey. He uses his foundation of architecture, his practice as a street artist and the history of the space from his derivation based on all that he has read and the conversations and stories he has heard - to weave compelling images of City Market through the expanse of time.
