Street Art at Delhi’s First Public Art Colony
February 10 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Description- Graffitis are writings or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched or painted illicitly on a wall or other surface, often within public view. Historic forms of graffiti have helped gain insight into the lifestyles and languages of past cultures. However, globally, graffiti has become intertwined with hip-hop culture and the myriad international styles derived from Philadelphia and New York City Subway graffiti. Although considered as a form of vandalism, which is a punishable crime, street art has often been used as a medium to express social and political messages as well.
In Delhi, street art festivals started only a few years back and have now become an annual affair. This walk will take you through the Lodhi Art District (Lodhi Colony, Meher Chand Market and Khanna Market area), India’s first art district, home to more than 15 street art installations done by various artists as part of the festival organised by St+Art India Foundation, which aims at making public art accessible to a wider audience.
This guided tour is free.
