New Delhi, Feb 24 (IANS) Around 500 graphic artists and painters Sunday expressed their thoughts in the form of graffiti and paintings on a kilometre-long wall on Delhi University's north campus.

Delhi Wallbook, initiated by Brand Promotions India and supported by Tata Housing, brought together professional and budding artists on the same platform to create the wall art under the theme 'Design the Change', an organiser said.

The event was inaugurated by Delhi University Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh.

The art enthusiasts included students from various colleges and institutes, professional freelance painters and school teachers.

"Delhi has the maximum number of unkempt walls that could be used as a ready-made surface for artists to come together and showcase their skills, and create an expression for a better tomorrow," said Sunil Kutty Menon, founder of the wallbook and director of Brand Promotions.

"The wallbook event will soon be made an annual event and will further move to Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Pune and Chennai," said Menon.
