Hyderabad: French artist Delas Delphine and city-based artist couple Swathi Vijay and Vijay Kumar have been commissioned to give HiTech flyover a new face ahead of the Global Entrepreneurs’ Summit. Ms Delphine is known for her street art displayed in cities in her country. Vijay and Swathi are known for their gigantic street art and will be giving Ms Delphine a helping hand. Ms Delphine told Deccan Chronicle that she was selected as part of the India-France art exchange programme.

“My work was earlier showcased on a private building in Hyderabad as part of Ella Maillart's project. For the art work on the flyover, I have worked on a few sketches and submitted the same to the municipal authority to pick any one.” Prashant K. Lahoti, who owns the Kalakriti Art Gallery, said, “The artists are sponsored by Kalakriti India and art@telanga-na, while the GHMC will pay for the paints and equipment. The work is likely to begin from Sunday.”

 

Around the same time, the Gachibowli flyover too will see some changes as artists sponsored by some hotels will work on paintings on the flyover’s pillars and base. Further innovations may be seen in street furniture made of recycled waste. Garbage compressed and packed in a metal cum glass box is one form of seating, while the GHMC’s west zone has commissioned a team from Bamboo India to make street furniture out of things like processed soft drink cans and chips packets to be placed along the route to HICC.
