"Hyderabad is going to be our seventh edition and we are eager to work here."
Street art has been a fading trend over the past decade. The creative art is being reintroduced by St+art India in an art festival in Hyderabad.
Whilst street art is not new to India with its rich heritage of colour and wall paintings from centuries past, it is important to generate its continuous development and this is where St+Art India is playing a key role.
St+art will be strutting down the streets of India’s Hyderabad, painting the town as they go along.
This art festival brought life into the streets of New Delhi, Lodhi Colony.
It is set to paint the streets of Hyderabad for a following year from 1st November to 12th November 2016.
This will give local artists a chance to show off their skills and art work.
Arjun Bahl from St+Art says:
“We have put out call-outs inviting artists and we’ll also be hosting a workshop when we come down to Hyderabad on 30 July.”
This is a great way for individuals to interact and be a part of this event.
Swathi and Vijay who are graffiti artists have agreed to to participate in the event.
St+art are looking for 15 other graffiti artists from the city to collaborate and work on a wall together, so it will give a chance to showcase talent and allow the creative flow to take over.
“Hyderabad is going to be our seventh edition and we are eager to work here.” Says Arjun.
Owner of Kalakriti Art Gallery, Prshant Lahoti, says:
“This project has been in the planning stage since the last six months. In Hyderabad there are only a handful of artists who create street art and that isn’t enough to put Hyderabad on the map of art.”
He hopes this festival will reveal the potential in these artists.
The streets of Hyderabad have not had their best beauty revealed, but St+art are hoping that will change once this events goes underway.
This event is all about bringing street art and showcasing creative talent.
