Italian Artist Millo  in St+Art Urban Festival in Mumbai

Italian Urban Artist Milo comes to Mumbai for St+art India Foundation’s festival in Mahim (E)

St+art India Foundation is organizing the art festival, in association with the Italian Cultural Institute in Dharavi, Mumbai. To organise the closure of this unique festival, St+art India has invited, together with the Italian Cultural Center in Mumbai, Italian superstar Millo to create a street art piece from 8th January onwards. The artist who is known for his satirical and socially reflexive pieces will also be delivering a workshop and talk for the public during his time in Shahu Nagar. The festival this year featured the coming together of art pieces that celebrated the everyday individual with unique street art pieces. With one more year gone by, the artists had a closer interaction with the territory as the festival team was mostly from Dharavi -- making the entire project a local effort.

Mahim (E) Art District is an ongoing and ever growing project that features now 11 no of murals painted by national and internationally renowned street artists. It is also the first gallery dedicated to the “every man”. All the invited artists in fact are masters in the depiction of human beings and their stories and the art district intents to celebrate everyday people and their diversity through art masterpieces.
