Select Citywalk Features Underground Art

1017artsParking lot walls are generally a dull affair, but Select Citywalk recently turned theirs into a veritable art show with its recent Art in the City event.

400 large canvases were affixed to the center’s basement walls, and 400 artists were given the freedom to create whatever they’d like on those walls, bringing the underground parking to colorful life.

The Times of India has the details:

Kanika Bhatia, a third year communication design student of Pearl Academy, had her wall art named ‘Babaji ka Ullu’, her take on recent controversies. ‘Painting fervently for three hours in front of so many people and on such a large canvas was very encouraging,’ commented Kanika catching her breath. She was happy she could brighten up a parking wall and allowed people to have good laugh over a serious issue.

Art collector Arjun Sharma, whose idea it was to have this wall art competition, felt the city desperately needed such public art. He compared the lack of good design on Delhi’s walls to the lively feel of Madrid and Barcelona. ‘Some of the walls of our city definitely need a makeover. We need to involve these young artists and promote them. The energy showcased was infectious and the final products are actually masterpieces,’ he asserted.”

To see what a parking lot looks like when blazing with color, take a look at the Art in the City album shared on our Facebook page.
