  • Can you briefly tell us about the St+art project? Since when is this active and what do you do exactly in this project?
  • What is the importance of murals in society? How and what changes happen once a cityscape has some murals/paint over it; as per your understanding?
  • Does Art need to be site-specific? Can you tell us how do you pick your canvas?
  • Since these artworks are always out in there, as a Festival Director, how have you manage a balance between creativity (freedom of art) and limitations of being a public artwork?
  • If we can safely say, St+Art India is an act of improving the urban aesthetic, we are still a long way to go. How long will it take in India? What’s your idea of an aesthetically beautiful surroundings?
