Street + Art + Craft
Updated: Nov 21, 2019
A humongous bird looks down at you. A tiger runs along with a masked boy. A bunch of birds fly out chaotically. These are wall murals at the Lodhi Art District in New Delhi. In January 2016, over 30 artists across the globe were flown in by ST+ART India Foundation to paint Lodhi Colony, the govt. housing estate built in the late 1940s by the British Raj. The mundane-ness of its wide, blank walls throughout its bylanes was broken with magnificient, theme-based, and large artwork, distinct of each artist. Revastra was one of the 2019 edit's openers via a ReSkills session of Zen bag-making for the Lodhi Colony community dwellers. It was mindful street-craft at its best with the young and the old participating enthusiatically.
