Pockets in Mumbai will soon become a canvas for street artists such as Eduardo Kobra, who is a well know Brazilian artist. The second edition of the ongoing St+art festival will bring together over 30 Indian and international artists to paint the town with their creativity and imagination. Some of the Indian designers who will be participating in the event include Sameer Kulavoor, Shilo Shiv Suleman, and Sameep Padora, among others.

St+art India is a non-profit organisation that has been stirring up a street art revolution across various cities such as Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore. Since 2014, this group has been adding colour and creativity to the mostly barren walls of the cities.

The St+art fest will reflect on the nature and soul of Mumbai by engaging in an artistic exploration of some of its most significant and iconic locations. Across three months (the festival ends on December 30), the artists will enhance the visual landscape of the city.

 

While Dharavi and Sassoon Dock will be the main focus for various art interventions — colourful murals, installations and workshops — there will also be three other special projects at Churchgate Station, Jindal Mansion, and the Western Railways.
