Unlike countries where street art is infamous, public walls in India get commissioned face-lifts by artists working with Government authorities.
Around 5 years ago, the walls in our cities were covered only with random posters, paan stains, and trails of urine. But that’s changed. Today, you will see art squashed between posters, stains and hawkers; fighting for their space in the sunshine. This modern art form, if I can call it that, stands on the razor’s edge — to one side it is vandalism and to the other it’s about art, conversation, and dialogue.

About to cross Tihar Jail? Chances are that you’ll be tempted to slow down.

Last year we explored Khirki Village near Saket, the experience of which we captured in our post Discover Khirki Village – The Graffiti Hub of Delhi. This February, we were really excited to see on Facebook the surge of pics from St.Art Delhi‘s street art festival in Shahpur Jat. The desire to explore fresh street art increased our curiosity to the point that finally on a holiday we made it to Shahpur Jat in the early hours. There couldn’t be a better time of the year to go there!
