Through murals, graffiti, paintings, installations, performances, workshops, talks and performances, St+art Festival, organized by St+ art India Foundation aimed at making art accessible for wider audience. The St+ art India Foundation collaborated with the Central Public Works Department and Swacch Bharat Mission (cleanliness initiative) and artisticallytransformed some areas of Delhi.

Through the festival, the public places of the capital got redefined. The walls at Lodhi Colony were painted tastefully to deliver social and political messages by many Indian and International artists. However, the special chapter of artistically unfolding the unassuming places of the capital also made the festival more unique.

WIP-The Street Art Show and a major part of the month-long street art show, was hosted at the largest Dry Port in Asia-ICD (Inland Container Depot) at Tughlakabad, Okhla. The area was an unexpected place and unlike other places had containers as the canvas. Some of the containers finished included the paintings ofa Baba ji (a holy man making a victory sign), a space scientist, Maruti Suzuki Alto car and more.

The exhibition is ongoing till February, 28. After the exhibition gets closed, the 100 containers shall remain painted and will travel in India for transporting goods.

Here are some of the stunning shots captured from the WIP- The Street Art Show, held at ICD, Okhla:
