Restaurant Art Islington


The Islington Masala Zone sets a new standard for restaurant design. It features stunningly coloured murals from two painters from Gond, a forested area of Madhya Pradesh, a not very well known part of India’s heartland.

The highly imaginative creatures will delight and divert children (who are especially welcome and for whom there will be some special dishes on the menu), while their parents will be amused by the single, discreet but explicit, adult panel.

The two painters Baju and Ram belong to the Jangarh school (named for Jangarh Singh Shyam, its tragic best known painter, who was kept a virtual prisoner in Japan by an impassioned, but over-enthusiastic collector and committed suicide). Baju and Ram were flown to London specially to paint the walls of Islington Zone.
