What Makes It Awesome
Mechanical engineers cum art enthusiasts – Chandni Mathur and Nikhil Kapur started Hoozinc as a T-shirt designing venture to let their creative juices flow. Today, they are one of the most sought after graffiti artists not only in Hyderabad but in other cities (Vizag, Delhi, Bombay, Bengaluru to name a few) as well. Their venture, The Hoozinc Store in Banjara Hills makes canvas paintings and quirky artwork on sneakers and clothes. Having opened a brick-and-mortar store since 2011, they cater to pop culture fans and have a variety of products from notebooks to metal signs for decor.
The duo behind Hoozinc also train self-taught artists or art school graduates in the process and have a full-fledged team of talent taking care of this business of art. Not just of the store, but also through their shareable murals and installations. They aim to spread the messages they believe into wider audiences and also cater to client needs in an unprecedented fashion. Their motive is to empower artists and promote respect for the art form in the country and beyond. Their art pieces can be found scattered across the city — from the Green Gully of Maqtha Art District to the walls inside Forum Mall. They also have worked on numerous cafes and bars including favourites like Tiki Shack and Cafe 115. It is also a professional creative partner for brands in housing, corporate, healthcare, and other sectors. If you enjoy bright and colourful statement art pieces on otherwise ordinary walls, you have to go on an exploration of all of Hoozinc’s work in the city.

We recommend that you hit up this store for customised gifts to surprise bae or to make your mum’s kitchen cooler too.
