It was during one of my lazy trips to Puducherry two years ago that I first stumbled upon a burst of fresh colours and art against its quaint colonial backdrop.

On a subsequent trip, I met Puppa Zeto and Artiste-Ouvrier (a stencil artist who called himself Pyaar Singh, spoke fluent French and claimed to be from Chandigarh), who are among the pioneers in French street art.

This photo essay captures images of some of the most vivid wall art in Puducherry, art that is defining Puducherry 2.0.
