Why: Because if walls could talk, they’d tell you to put the milk back in the fridge, or remind you to get that cavity filled. Alternatively, they could belt out your favorite lyrics (“Here is the church and here is the steeple/ We sure are cute for two ugly people”) or give you a pat on the back. Listen to what they have to say with these cute mountable blackboard speech bubbles that you can write on, erase and reuse, conceptualised by month-old design label Random in Tandem.
When: Now, because it’s not too slate!
Why: A course at NIFT Delhi; six-month module with Marvel Comics in LA; and a decade of playing Tekken video games are responsible for artist Fiza Khan’s graphic novel wall paintings, which come with three point perspectives and dynamic body movements.

Fiza can do Iron Man-ish superheroes, Manga art, mythological gods and her favourite: characters inspired by Japanese tattoo art.
When: You need a Sliver of Surfer.
