St+art foundation and Asian Paints are set out to create the first art district in India

100 container sheds will be transformed into piece of art by National and International artists

St+art foundation and Asian Paints with the support of Ministry of Urban Development are back again this year. After the on-going work of Lodhi Colony’s walls with 22 astounding murals and bringing life and richness of art to the city, the next destination is ICD Concor Container.  In their mission to work towards Urban Renewal they have launched a massive exhibition. This is India’s largest container shed. About 100+containers will be transformed into piece of art by various acclaimed Indian and International artists.

A big scale exhibition is revealed with extreme pride and excitement by St+art and Asian Paints. It was a vision to see all of this in action. We as bloggers really enjoyed every bit of what we saw.

St+art and Asian Paints collaborated with CONCOR – Container Corporation of India with the aim to reinvent a space unknown to the general public and showcasing a rather unexplored part of the city. St+art India foundation is a non-profit Organization that works with street artists from India and around the world on art projects in public spaces. Asian Paints is supporting St+art foundation and the artists consecutively with the resources they require to pull off such a massive show including funds, administrative support paints most importantly and any other elements. The objective is to turn stereotype and dull walls to vibrant, meaningful rich artworks and transform the cityscape of Delhi.

Our eyes opened wide as we looked at the vibrant and rich colours. Art is really something magnificent. It transports you to an entirely different plane.

Mr. Amit Syngle, President Asian Paints added “As the largest player in the industry, it is our utmost responsibility to add colour to create vibrant and happy environment in India. In the tenure of the association with St-Art foundation for the last two years in Mumbai and Delhi, we have worked on various street art projects across the two cities with a mutual hope to bring art to public. We support the foundation and the artists with every requirement possible. We are extremely proud to be associated with this initiative. We believe this will bring great change and will transform the cityscape drastically with the invincible power of art.”

Arjun Bahl, Co-Founder and Festival Director of St+art Foundation said “We are extremely thrilled with the massive show that we have been able to put together. Thanks to Ministry of Urban Development for supporting us in this cause. With Asian Paints we hope to have a long term association as we share the same vision, which is to bring art to public. We are thrilled with the response and hope to work together in bringing happiness in form of art for our Country.”

St+ Art Delhi and Asian Paints are painting various sites across Delhi with acclaimed national and international artists. Apart from the container sheds and Lodhi Colony these artists are also working on Govindpuri Metro station, to transform this station into an iconic art station. Can’t wait to be a part of more such events in the city!
