A new “public art district” is nearing completion in New Delhi, India, as part of the St+art Foundation’s fourth street art festival.
The Lodhi Art District will ultimately comprise murals from more than 25 artists, according to the St+art Foundation. Both local and international artists have been at work since December creating murals across a roughly four block radius. From the Foundation’s webiste:
The first ever Public Art District in India is on its way, as over 25 street artists from India and around the world have been working to re-invigorate the iconic Lodhi Colony area of Delhi since December 2015.
By the end of February 2016, several walls between Khanna Market and Meherchand Market will be turned into a spectacle – an open air art gallery accessible to everyone!

This year’s St+art Festival also involves a “Work In Progress” show, a walk-through mural installation painted across 100 shipping containers.
According to the Foundation, once WIP has ended, the 100 containers will keep their murals and travel around India transporting goods.
