The increasing incidents of man-leopard conflict in the Mysore region has inspired artiste Badal Nanjundaswamy to do his bit to spread the message of peaceful coexistence.

The art director, who is known for producing meaningful artworks on social issues and subjects common people can relate to, has taken the help of 3D street art this time to spread the message of ‘live and let live' in view of the increasing instances of attacks on leopards who strayed into human habitations.

The artiste has done a 3D painting of a leopard on the premises of Kalamandira to educate people about the need to protect this species.

“The image gives a three-dimensional optical illusion from a certain angle. I have done this art for the first time. I chose leopard as the subject because of the rising man-leopard conflict in the region,” he said.
