Adding colours to the city of gardens
In Pakistan like rest of world general public and private organisations come forward to contribute their productive input for making societies better where governments have to resolve other mega problems.
The essence of Street Art Competitions is to discourage all types of wall-chalking of the streets of city. In this regard a paint giant Master Paints organised a Street Art Competition in collaboration with Message Welfare Trust. This enthusiasm of participants shows that people of Lahore still love their city and want to make it more wonderful. A gigantic number of people from various walks of life especially students participated in the Street Art Competition on Allama Iqbal Road in Lahore on a beautiful sunny Sunday.
Decorating a large number of walls throughout the already vibrant city of Lahore, the Street Art Competition has now spread its colors to Multan, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi and Gujranwala.
The Competition allows the youth to utilise their creative abilities in beautifying their cities. They also get an opportunity to bring their thoughts and expressions into form of art.
Initiated early this year, the series of SAC has been scattering colors all over Lahore, travelling all the way to Multan, Gujranwala and Rawalpindi. Recently, more than 200 students from various education institutes participated in SAC. Armed with their expertise and raw talent of drawing and painting. Last year, 50 walls of Lahore were already tinted with meticulous designs painted by the youth.
With Pakistan and its beauty as the theme of the activity, the students of city presented their love Pakistan’s beauty and heritage through their creativity and paints. They walked through undiscovered terrains of their talents. Historical monuments and natural landmarks of Pakistan were painted. Those with the flair elaborate amusing graffiti on the large brick canvas.
With a vision of a better future, Master Paints both supports and supplies this anti wall chalking campaign as it gives people a break from the advertisement infested walls. Making the concept of talking walls as their foundation, SAC and Master Paints make their statement of a cleaner environment by inviting people to create from themselves a favourable surrounding. The thought of talking walls is talking about the beauty, culture, art and traditions of our country. It also encourages the art activities among the youth.
Every talking wall depicts a story-a story that tells you something about the artist, a bit about the theme of the competition, a little about the colors and most importantly, it reminds us, the citizens of Pakistan, how our cup has been filled up to the brim with blessings in the shape of our country, and how we choose to ignore it instead of cherishing it.
