The street art exhibition at ‘Kona’ in Jor Bagh is something you should definitely check out! If you are looking for a different experience this weekend, something other than going to the movies or partying, go to F(r)iction- the street art walk through exhibition in Delhi.

F(r)iction’ is a two-day art exhibition that is a part of the Lodhi Art Festival happening from 16-17th February.

The festival aims at celebrating the culture of the country while leaving an imprint of this generation through vividly coloured street art. Artists from around the world have gathered for this street art festival and it would be a complete sin to miss on it!

Initiated by the St+art India Foundation, Lodhi Art Festival is a huge coming together of different cultures. The festival brings together people from various countries who share different histories and are creating art that will be the defining moment in the culture of this city.

F(r)iction, as the name suggests, is a celebration of the friction or the tension between art, nature and technology as well as the complexities of our ‘entangled’ lives. The exhibition will take you on a walk along elaborately painted walls and murals that showcase works of international artists such as Brandon Tay, Tan Zi Xi, Yok and Sheryo from Singapore, Daan Botlek from Netherlands, Tellas from Italy, Do and Khatra, Osheen Siva and Sajid Wajid Shaikh from India.

This event is only the first phase of a two phased event. While the first one is rolling in February itself, the second one will materialize in March. Much like the first phase, it will also feature several national and international artists.

Wait, there’s more!

Not only is the festival featuring several art works, it will also comprise of a pop-up show called “A-typical” which will feature artwork from artists such as, Amanda Tan, anGie Seah, Daniel Yu, Muhammad Izdi, Eugene Soh and several others. You can also find small pop-up classes where you can learn the little nuances of creating a piece of art, be it free hand or elaborate geometric pieces. The exhibition will take you down a walkway that is bustling with colours and interpretations and believe us, you’ll be in absolute awe of the art in front of you.

So, if you’re in Delhi, instead of visiting the cliches like, Chawri Bazaar or Parathe Wali Gali, get a yourself a little bite of this culture. Head to the lanes and by-lanes of Jor Bagh and lose yourself in the beauty of the displayed intricate artwork.
