Street Artist, Yogesh Saini took the audience on a beautiful journey through painting the streets of Delhi and giving them new meanings. What started out as an idea to paint a few dustbins in the city so as to make them visually appealing, has now led to an organization impacting markets, schools and slums around the city with numerous people taking forward the ideology. Art, he says, is the one thing we all need to invest our energy in because it possesses the power of positively re-vamping our outlook towards life.
Yogesh Saini, the founder of Delhi Street Art, is a creative entrepreneur with passionate interest in art, photography, design, writing and other similar endeavors. Having lived overseas for over 20 years and having worked with Fortune 500 companies, Saini has made Delhi his home again and has since felt a strong urge to make his city more lively and liveable again. He started Delhi Street Art with the goal to add more colour to Delhi’s open spaces, give local artists a creative outlet to express themselves, and to encourage citizens to keep their public spaces clean, while appreciating art. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
