About the Wall Art Festival
India has a long history and tradition of wall art in numerous regions of India, exposing to the World the infinite richness of its cultures. Both countries have many internationally recognized artists in these Wall art and Urban culture scenes. The street art movement is also at the core of the reflection which redefines equality and expression of all, in the public space of our modern societies. Through many events such as murals, encounters, and contests, our Wall Art Festival, aims to put under the light that in 2022 equality is not a choice but a necessity. In Kolkata, we welcome the very dynamic and prolific artist, SKIO. Skio’s first murals appeared In 1993 in the Nice region; starting with mural letterings before moving on to figurative romantic topics fed by his pop and TV culture.
Today the works of artist Skio (who studied to be a designer), mixing geometrical shapes and realistic portraits featuring obfuscated eyes, question our presence in the urban landscape by creating new modern and harmonious esthetics. Shown in numerous festivals all over the world (Paris, London, Mexico, Shanghai…) for the last twenty years, Skio’s creations, thanks to his sensitivity and sense of assembly make him one of today’s major upcoming artists.
Come join us at the NSHM School of Design to experience SKIO and the beauty of his art created in collaboration with the students of NSHM Design School and the Centre of Creative and Performing Arts.
The mural is a dedication to the iconic and path-breaking theatre actresses, stars & contemporaries from France & from Kolkata.
