Chandigarh, undoubtedly most famous for its Architecture, planning and beauty well justifying its sub-title ‘The City Beautiful’ has now decided to star cast its beauty on the walls of different areas. These walls wont be just painted, but will contain well-versed messages beautifully designed by experts. The idea is that the walls that were lying in an ugly rotten state would now be depicting perfection through art.
Chandigarh takes Michelangelo’s quote seriously i.e. “Trifles make perfection and perfection is no trifle”. That’s how Chandigarh manages to be perfect in all respects.
Chandigarh Administration is taking a step forward to paint all the ugly and abandoned walls in the city to make it pleasing to eyes with a great message. This wall painting mural design concept will be implemented starting from Thursday. The idea of identifying and beautifying certain walls of Chandigarh emerged during Art and Heritage Festival which was held at Capitol Complex recently.
The project of painting such concepts o Chandigarh walls is a great move and it will further beautify our city Beautiful.
The Wall at Govt. Hospital, Sector 16
The main wall of GMSH (Government Multi Speciality Hospital), Sector-16 which faces Madhya Marg has already been painted with great messages. As it is the wall of a hospital, so the message displayed on this wall is ‘getting healthy’ which depicted things like yoga and cycling as one of the many ways for a healthy life.
Chandigarh Lalit Kala Academy conceptualized the whole idea and design in which a student named Simran Kaur from Government College of Architecture got her concept finalized and was awarded with a prize money of Rs 15000. Further two students named Dilip Kumar and Kundan along with their team finally painted the concept on the walls of GMSH-Sector-16.
Other selected walls will also be painted and beautified like this one very soon. For every wall, there will be a specific message such as to give something positive or a happy feeling to anyone and everyone who witnesses the art.
