Someone wisely said that “The Earth without art is just ‘EH’” and in tune with this idea, Delhi bid adieu to its boring mundane bare walls and splashed it with some life, character and that much-needed vibrancy!
And so we headed to Tughlakabad for the opening of Work in Progress (WIP), a walk through installation installed in the Inland Container Depot (ICD) to see what the buzz was all about and we weren’t disappointed!
Vibrant hues and pops of colours, interesting music, mind boggling art and yummy food - such was the opening of WIP!
The highlight of the day was Neil Shoe Meulman’s live art. The Netherlands based artist wrote people’s names on the wall and later called it the “Delhi Traffic”.
Schedule | To spread more knowledge and awareness about street art, there will be exciting and invigorating events every Sunday of this month -

With a staunch belief that street art has the ability to build the local pride, this festival paves the path to making people more conscious about their surroundings - it seems like the festival is an art and environment revolution for the city. Go witness it for yourselves!
