Art and artist discoveries in New Delhi, India

"Imagine a city where graffiti wasn't illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall - it's wet." 
— Banksy (Wall and Piece)

Recently, I had the opportunity to walk through New Delhi’s Lodhi Art Colony, a residential area of Lutyen’s Delhi, and see some striking murals depicting climate change, need for conservation, unity, and other themes. The murals are a result of collaboration between St+art India Foundation and Asian Paints, and are quite a sight to behold. I have been unable to credit all the artists whose artwork is featured, but if you happen to know the name of one or more missing creatives, please chime in and I will add those to the blog! Many thanks in advance!
