In Pics: Delhi’s Street Art Festival Leaves Lodhi Colony Magical

Dilliwalon, gather your selfie devices and your amazing cameras because in the heart of your city, there are opportunities to take photos of yourselves looking cool against some magnificent wall art.

St+art Festival is a collaborative platform for street artists from India and around the world. It works on the idea of ‘Art for Everyone’ with the primary objective of making art accessible to wider audiences while having a positive impact on society.

Over 20 artists gathered in the capital to transform the bland walls of Lodhi Colony into a colourful wonderland. The fourth edition of the ‘St+art’ event in Delhi organised it in such a way that Lodhi colony is now an open-air public art gallery.

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.

The artwork was completed by the end of February. Here are some of the stunning pieces by artists from around the world.

Creativity, Enthusiasm, Canvas, Let’s Go!
