Delhi is decorated with works of more than 20 artists all over the world
More than 20 artists from around the world have transformed the walls of a neighborhood in the heart of India’s capital with murals as part of an annual street art festival, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Organizers of the fourth edition of the “St+art” event in Delhi want to make Lodhi colony into a contemporary open air, public art gallery. So far, artists have painted 12 massive murals and will be painting more in the days to come before the festival concludes at the end of February.
“Hopefully after completion this will fuel the growth of street art in India and will also open up the idea of choosing art as a career for the younger generation,” said Hanif Kureshi, a New Delhi-based typographer and artistic director of “St+art” in Delhi.
