A lot of us,Indians have grown up seeing our streets swarmed by many pulp fiction inspired paintings on the walls, pillars or even as local advertisements. What we didn't see was a growth of something that could concretely be termed as Street Art!

As the times have changed so have our appetite for the art in its various forms, individuals and communities are now getting involved in a new wave of artistic expression on the street!

Starting 2015 we saw, St+Art India take up many spaces in India to transform ordinary streets into creative masterpieces across various parts of the country.

Here is a list of the best streets to find some of these most awe-inspiring pieces! 

1. Delhi

The capital has been blasted with a bomb of colours on the streets. What is even cooler is the fact that these foundations have collaborated to come up with some brilliant street installations covering up shelters for the homeless.The concept is gathering speed as they are painting the town with the most inspiring art pieces that would overwhelm you and inspire you to create something of your own!

3.Chennai

Conquer the Concrete is a maiden venture towards a movement of street art ,which is right now spreading in Chennai. Looking at the upcoming art culture in Mumbai and Delhi, Chennai thought of coming up with something on the similar lines that could work out as a homage to the hoarding painters who have coloured the walls of the city throughout generations meanwhile welcoming the new surge of contemporary art.
