Just like the Street Art festivals in Mumbai and Delhi, here’s presenting Street Art Chennai.

CONQUER THE CONCRETE is chennai’s own effort turning public spaces into words of urban art. Spread across 18 days, six international artists invited from Germany, the USA and Spain will collaborate with Indian street artists from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai, cinema hoarding painters and Chennai art enthusiasts. More than 20 walls in the city will be “conquered” by around 25 artists and art lovers.

The project or festival has been launched by the Goethe-Institute Chennai/Max Mueller Bhavan in collaboration with multiple city schools and corporations :  Chennai City Connect, Corporation of Chennai, Southern Railways, SPI Cinemas, Paint Box, Spaces, School of Architecture & Planning-Anna University, Stella Maris College and YMCA College of Physical Education.


The focus of this Indo-German and international cultural cooperation is  introducing beautiful art in public urban spaces. What to expect? Mural paintings and massive works of art spread across the city, brightening up nooks and corners of Chennai.With art in the public space, Chennai will be a more attractive and pleasant city of the 21st century: more attractive for tourism and commerce, but the most important, more attractive for its own citizens.

Here are some completed murals that have already popped up in the city

The project wants to encourage artists and creative citizens to actively take part in the urban development, in the big infrastructural and social changes, that Chennai is undergoing. On the other hand it wants to encourage the authorities of Tamil Nadu and Chennai as well as private citizens to facilitate possibilities for this civic and artistic participation. The Street Art Festival gives examples of how citizens and decision-makers can mutually influence the appearance of public spaces.
