While walking down possibly any street in India, it is hard to miss the hand-painted taxis, trucks and shop signs. Today, I will be writing about one of my most favourite sign painters from India, Painter Kafeel.  Originally from Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Kafeel has never been to school, however, he moved to Delhi to become a street painter and established himself in Old Delhi. He recently participated in Letterheads 2018: London Calling where 250 sign painters from 30 countries and 5 continents headed to Oxo Tower Wharf to paint and talk shop. Painter Kafeel’s “Salaam London,” that was made for this event, was sold for a large sum of money at a charity auction.

Check out the digitized as well as handpainted versions of his font “Painter Kafeel” below. It consists of 9 fonts, which when used together recreate the unique multi-colored look of Indian Street Lettering: and don’t forget to follow him on Instagram @PainterKafeelArtist!
