St+art India is the brainchild of 5 co-founders all belonging to diverse backgrounds. Founded in 2014 by Arjun Bahl, Hanif Kureshi, Giulia Ambrogi, Akshat Nauriyal, and Thanish Thomas.
St+art India is a not-for-profit foundation with the intent of making art more democratic. St+art explores the synergy between art and its ability to transcend socio-cultural barriers and lead to the exchange of ideas through unique and collectively shared experiences in public space. St+art has made over, 500 artworks in 10 Indian cities with more than 100 artists from over 25 countries.
