Hyderabad (Indian city) is all set to host the Street art festival, where artists from all around the world can come and exhibit their creativity. This is the first time in Indian history, such a large scale Street art festival is being conducted. “From November 1 to 12th, 2016, St-artindia, art@telangana, and Kalakriti Art Gallery are collaborating to host a street art festival where artists from across the world and the State will choose and execute their work at select locations,” said B.V. Papa Rao, trustee of art@telangana.
St-artindia is quite popular for conducting huge murals and street art projects. Some of the popular street art projects oraganised by them are 6,080 sq. ft. mural of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi in Delhi and huge street art paintings. According to Hanif Kureshi of St-artindia,"We don’t need a gallery. The street is our gallery". “Street art can invigorate the art scene and brings art to the masses. We are doing this because we love the city and we wanted to bring something world class. We have shortlisted locations and did a recce of a few places, but the final call will be taken by St-artindia,” said Prashant Lahoti of Kalakriti. “There are two foreign artists and four national artists, and we have asked them to pick about 12 artists from Telangana to execute the project. But the choice will be theirs,” said Mr. Rao.”
This exhibition will bring out the hidden talent in Hyderabad. Telangana artists can send in their work to the organisers and based on their portfolio they will get chosen for the exhibition.
