[h=1]Say Hello to India’s First Open Air Public Art District. With 12 Stunning Pictures.[/h] Tanaya Singh


The St+Art India foundation, a non-profit organization working on art projects in public spaces to make art accessible to a wider audience, is hosting the amazing St+Art Festival in Delhi. The two month long festival has brought together over 25 street artists from India and across the world to brighten the city with art interventions like murals, installations and more. And with their hard work, these artists have successfully transformed the Lodhi Colony area of Delhi into India’s very first open public art district.
“Art has the potential to create a positive impact on a city and its residents, while also paving the way towards making people more conscious about their environment. Through the creation of India’s first public art district, we hope to work with the government on more projects to create a sustainable approach towards the Swachh Bharat Mission,” Arjun Bahl, co-founder and festival director of St+Art India told Business Insider.
[h=2]The brilliant work of these artists is visible on several walls between Khanna Market and Meherchand Market.[/h]

Colours of the soul by Senkoe. Inspired by the beauty of nature, Senkoe painted these birds in Lodhi colony to represent the colourful diversity of the people who live there and also to encourage them to communicate with each other and share stories, just like the birds would.”

“Vishvaroopa by Inkbrushnme. Vishvaroopa is an all-encompassing omniform of Vishnu and marks the beginning of 18 day battle of Mahabharata. Vishnu manifests in his cosmic grandeur hypnotising Arjuna, the supreme warrior, and shows him that all universal matter, animate and inanimate, is him.”

The Origin of the World by Borondo. Since this wall is located opposite a maternity hospital, Borondo, in his signature abstract style, interprets the concepts of life and birth. The open arch in the middle of the wall and the tree which inhabits it are a metaphor for the origin – the source of life, while a river flows through the arches into infinity with a boat on it which reflects the journey of life.”

Original Aboriginal by Australian artist Reko Rennie. Rennie’s art incorporates his association to the Kamilaroi people, using traditional geometric patterns that represent his community.”

“The astronaut atop the wall is a metaphor for someone who can see things from a different perspective, as a silent viewer of a larger picture. In this case, he is a witness to all the daily activities of Lodhi colony.”

Lava Tree by Anpu Varkey

The Lotus by Suiko. In this piece Suiko takes the national flower of India – the lotus and re-imagines it with his signature of curved lines and Japanese characters to create this mural for the Lodhi Art District.”

“Niels Shoe Meulman did something he has never done before – paint a poem written by him. Being a writer for over 35 years, Shoe decided to mix up all the influences he has had over the years to create this piece.”

For a person who is fed up with seeing only political cut-outs in all places in Chennai, the art work displayed here, looks excellent. The dedicated art projects in public places put up by this non-profit organization, is really commendable !!
