Malleswaram Hogona (Eng: Let’s go to Malleswaram) is a street art project to make the streets safe for the community. Conceived by the Bengaluru moving project, this street art walk is an initiative to make neighbourhoods safe, friendly, and full of character.
For this project, 13 Indian artists came together to create 12 walls filled with art through the secret lanes of Malleswaram to reclaim spaces for pedestrians, and we would love to host you
Apart from being one of the oldest planned neighbourhoods in the city, it houses a flower market, a 71-year-old eatery in an art deco building, and lanes adorned with trees. Each work of art tells you the artist’s inspiration and their connection to the landscape.
Let’s head to the streets of Malleswaram to go back in time as well as witness present-day fiesta with murals.

Did you know Malleswaram was one of the first planned neighbourhoods in Bangalore built in 1889? More such stories lined up for you when you spend an idyllic morning with us savouring some hot, hot kaapi (coffee) and walking around the neighbourhood soaking in the vivid street art.
Malleswaram is like a warm hug from a handmade shawl on a cold winter day. It’s a modern-day Malgudi with the goodness of history and the excitement of new-age quirks.
Street art is an important fabric of urbanisation and community engagement, which tells stories of people, their lives, and their neighbourhoods. And Malleswaram’s streets offer everything – trees, trivia, and art, and we’d like to take you through the lanes for a visual treat.
