Graffiti has impacted the Indian Hip Hop scene in a powerful manner. For years, it has been the silent artform. It has been as mystic as it has been openly showcased across major cities (especially Mumbai). Take a stroll through various Mumbai streets and districts (especially on their western line) and you will notice the not so subtle tags of graffiti writers like NME, Mooz, Moron etc.
For years the Graffiti artists have been given visibility only during conversations around the culture of Hip-Hop in India detailing the elements. It used to be and in many opinions still is a standout element. The same light has not been shone upon this crucial element of Hip-Hop in India as much as on any other subculture/element in India Hip-Hop.
