For the third consecutive year, St+art Festival in Delhi, India, showed its strength as a collaborative platform for street artists from India and around the world. With the main concept being Art for Everyone, the organizer’s primary objective was to make art accessible for wider audiences while having a positive impact on society.
Over the period of two months, the invited artists changed the visual landscape of the city with art interventions in public spaces through murals, installations, performances, workshops, talks and screenings. Aside from working in public, as a natural environment for these artists, the festival set up an open air exhibition, WIP – The Street Art Show, at the largest dry port in Asia – ICD (Inland Container Depot) – Tughlakabad, Okhla. Covering 31,200 sq ft, the entire area is transformed into a walk-through installation using 100 shipping containers, with works by 25 national and international artists. Once the exhibition closes, the containers will remain painted and travel in India for their initial purpose for transporting goods, extending the main idea of the festival. Here is a selection of the works by the participating artists such as Borondo (seen above), Nevercrew, Niels Shoe Muelman, Hendrik Beikirch / ECB, Agostino Iacurci, Dwa Zeta, Amitabh Kumar, Reko Rennie, Kafeel, and more.
