Colorothon Lucknow Season 9 was launched by the vice-chairman of Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) at Shaheed Path flyover wall near Indira Gandhi Pratishthan in Gomti Nagar here on Wednesday.

Artists from Delhi have arrived to paint the walls of Shaheed Path. The project has been launched in collaboration with the LDA and Delhi Street Artists. The wall art is a part of an effort to beautify the city by showcasing the art, heritage and culture of Lucknow.

Colorothon is an initiative that rekindles the lost joy of drawing & painting while bringing everyone together to express their heart out. This platform is created for people to make them pick-up art tools and express themselves.

Speaking on the occasion, LDA V-C PN Singh said, “With the colours of unity and diversity, Colorothon has taken the initiative to paint the walls in Lucknow and is bringing the ninth rendition of the event to beautify the city on the Republic Day.”

The painted wall of Shaheed Path will also be showcased to the delegates of the Uttar Pradesh Global Investors Summit which will be held next month.

The painting started in presence of LDA V-C PN Singh, founder of Colorothon Ahmed Shariff, marketing head of Colorothon India Shams Warsi, founder of Delhi Street Artist Yogesh Saini, horticulture officer of LDA SP Sisodia and chief engineer of LDA Indu Shekhar Singh.

The artists painted Awadh’s rich nawabi culture and also showcased the lifestyle of a common man of Lucknow.
