This Street art walk in Delhi hosted via SeekSherpa in Khanna Market, Lodhi Road brings forward an artistic, colorful yet so public face of Delhi amidst its ordinary hustle-bustle of the streets.
A street art walk in India's first public art district in Khanna market and Meherchand market in Lodi area, surely ushers anyone into creative public artistic wonderland of street art.
In a city like Delhi where the honking horns, huge traffic lanes and usual humdrum rush mark the usual impression of its streets, several Indian and foreign artists have transformed Khanna market and its vicinity into a visual delight, with lots of food - not only for brushes and thought but also for Delhi-belly.
Various huge wall paintings and graffiti touch several subjects ranging from history, Indian New Delhi, nature, science, space and perhaps the entire world as in its Vishwaroopa wall showcasing the all-encompassing being.
An amalgamation of various vibrant art forms at Delhi's largest public art district in Lodhi - Indian, western, contemporary, tribal adds as an icing on the cake. A hub of exciting stories, myths, interpretations, art history, jokes, and serious environmental and social issues uncompromisingly invites viewers gaze! Just as the birds in The colors of soul share stories, walls too have dastans, to listen and to tell. Witness this celebration of art for everyone in Delhis streets, market places and residential areas @ Khanna market, Lodhi colony.

The price mentioned includes transport (rickshaw/auto to Khanna Market), water bottle.

Suited for:
Any street and/or art lover who is interested in what the walls of Delhi have to say!

Notes:
Come with an open mind and wear comfortable clothes and shoes as we will be walking on the streets of Delhi.

Who are they?
While playing in the soil of Hapur, Uttar Pradesh during the first seventeen years of my life, he remained connected with essentials of a simple lifestyle- moving on the streets, meeting simple people and mingling with art and nature. After his schooling, the big city Delhi initiated me into college life at St. Stephen's College - a life full of adventure, activities, exploration and what not. One unifying thread which ran and still runs through my soul and lifestyle is art. His family bloodline and my mother's artistic brilliance sparked off my interest in the world of fine arts. In school and more vehemently in college, the exposure to different art forms related to literature, activities in college societies, or simply painting for leisure gave me ample opportunity to invest in art, writing, theatre and social work- not just in performative aspect but in organization too.
Internships with organisations like Happy Hands Foundation and Potli - A Bag of Wonders helped me connect to a larger artistic world where I learned and taught two Indian Traditional folk art- Jadoo Patua and Warli-to kids, adults and teachers. More recently, travelling and exploration have become indispensable to my daily routine, whether it is simply a walk around university campus, Delhi Streets and markets or National Gallery of Modern Art meeting new people with their interesting tales and jokes, along with gathering some informational acumen.
His interests lie in experimenting with art and himself in a serious yet fun manner, widening my horizon of personal and societal understanding and commitment.

Why them?
As an art enthusiast, his knowledge of art ensued from childhood experience, literature and formal training under Indian traditional master artists. This has helped me delve deeper into art and appreciate it better. The informal jokes and interpretations of the street art he has gathered will make the walk enjoyable and informative! Studying English Literature at St. Stephen's College, an art enthusiast who has explored art through painting, teaching and simply walking around Delhi! An active member of The Fine Arts Society of St. Stephen's. Work experience at Potli- A Bag of Wonders; and at Happy Hands Foundation- wherein got trained in 'Jadoo Patua' and 'Warli' and further taught them for an year. A person who sees art everywhere!
