The Chairman and Managing Director of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra got so impressed by a Mysore based artist’s creativity that he has decided to help him through his foundation. Anand Mahindra took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to share some images showing potholes covered with creative pieces of street art. “Yesterday I tweeted how Ukrainians dealt with potholes. Here’s how we creative Indians turn our liabilities into–literally–street art!” he wrote in his tweet.

Twitterati was quick to identify that it was the work of a Mysore-based artist, Badal Nanjundaswamy, and brought that to Mahindra’s light. “Sir pls mention artist name.. he is Badal Nanjundaswamy artist from Mysore. He has done many wonderful work or u can say artistic protests,” one Twitter user wrote. The business tycoon was quick to acknowledge the fact and asked if someone can put him in touch with the artist. “Can someone put me in touch with him? Perhaps we can support his creativity through our foundation,” he wrote in another tweet.

By then, Badal Nanjundaswamy had noticed the tweets and replied to Anand Mahindra leaving his e-mail id for further contact. “Sir, thank u very much for recognizing my artworks. I deeply appreciate your encouragement & kind words. My id is baadalvirus@gmail.com,” he wrote. Anand Mahindra too concluded by saying that he’ll be in touch. “Your work is exciting, @baadalvirus Thank you for your contact details. I will be in touch…,” Mahindra wrote.

A few weeks ago, Anand Mahindra had shared the image of an auto-rickshaw owner, who had designed the back of his three-wheeler in a manner that made it look like the Mahindra Scorpio SUV. Back then, he had promised to gift a car to the auto driver himself. The company then tracked down the owner of the rickshaw, who happened to be Kerala-based auto rickshaw driver named Sunil and offered a brand new Mahindra Supro Mini Truck in return for his ‘master-piece’ vehicle.
