Art Stations Project: Arjan Garh Metro Station

The 'Art Stations’ project is an endeavour to transform transit spaces into walk-through galleries. In 2017, the Arjan Garh metro station became the second Art Station in the city of New Delhi, after the Govind Puri metro station.

Done in collaboration with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), the project aims to enliven transit spaces trough artistic interventions while enhancing the experience for commuters.

Arjan Garh Metro Station, Delhi 2017

Using bright colours and intricate patterns, Singaporean artists Sam Lo and Soph O depicted the rich local flora and fauna as a way to remind people about the beauty these creatures inherently possess, and pay homage to their spirit of survival.

Mexican artist Senkoe - famous for his use of brightly patterned birds and animals, draws his inspiration from nature. In Arjan Garh, his birds can be seen flying in and out against a background of Delhi’s historic architecture. Nilesh, who tries to narrate the indigenous identity of spaces through his murals, painted the inner walls of the station with animals such as monkeys and peacocks - commonly found in and around the area.
