The St+Art India Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to make public art, so it is accessible to a wider audience than art usually is. They organized the St+Art Festival in Delhi’s Lodhi Colony.

“The astronaut atop the wall is a metaphor for someone who can see things from a different perspective, as a silent viewer of a larger picture. In this case, he is a witness to all the daily activities of Lodhi colony.”

“The Origin of the World by Borondo. Since this wall is located opposite a maternity hospital, Borondo, in his signature abstract style, interprets the concepts of life and birth. The open arch in the middle of the wall and the tree which inhabits it are a metaphor for the origin – the source of life, while a river flows through the arches into infinity with a boat on it which reflects the journey of life.”
