India has a variety of unique places: green cities, economically fast-growing cities, heritage sites, and a network of a vast and magical park or natural sites…A comfortable public space makes the main cities of the country, unique places among all the others, where citizens enjoy spending time.
India’s painting scene, over the history, is also a major aspect of Indian culture, with worldwide known artists such as Sayed RAZA and a variety of pictorial traditions that remain part of contemporary Indian society. Its artists are recognized through their originality, the respect of tradition and its unique identity for the storytelling, painting, and colourful aspects.
Considering and celebrating this incredible potential and the interest generated by this artistic practice, the French Institute in India, the network of Alliances Francaises in India, JSW Paints and their partners will pursue the development of a second edition of the WALL ART FESTIVAL.
