India has woken up to street art in a big way. While a recent festival in Delhi saw its Lodhi Colony area transform into a pretty paradise of outstanding wall paintings thanks to the collaborative effort of artists across the globe, Pune too, got a vibrant and much wider makeover. Lead by 26 artists and supported by over 250 volunteers, the artworks depict important aspects of Pune. Interestingly, one of the artworks has also become the biggest graffiti of railways done by public participation.
Here are the artworks:
Lead by Vanarsena, a group of eight young local artists, who have resolved to beautify the city as well as clean its public and private spaces, plenty of quirky, symbolic visuals that portray the true essence of Pune have been used in the artworks.
As a part of this project, the group also cleaned and revamped a wall at the city's railway station in collaboration with Swachh Pune Swachh Bharat (SPSB), an organization that works towards cleaning and restoring public spaces.
We think public participation when mixed with creativity is a pure thing of beauty, what say?
