Decorative Power Poles on Foster Street
Two local emerging artists, Sohail Yamin and Yoge Biju, have brought Indian themed and culturally inspired street art to Little India’s Foster Street in the form of decorated power poles.
These are the first in a series of power pole decorations planned for Foster Street, continuing the City of Greater Dandenong’s street art program in the Indian Cultural Precinct.
Sohail Yamin’s work, titled “Peace and Love”, is based on the brightly coloured motifs, symbols and slogans characteristic of contemporary truck art on the subcontinent. Text in Urdu, Sanskrit and English is included in the design.
Yoge Biju’s work “Thoonu” (pillar) is located across from Dandenong Railway Station at Museum India’s entrance. Her work utilises elements of classical Indian dance which brings life, love, vibrancy and attraction to Little India Precinct.
