A Dose of Art in Noida

Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) collaborated with the Noida Authority for a series of unique public art initiatives. The first project under this association will be a painted mural installation at the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) underpass in Noida. The 640-metre underpass is located on the crossing of Sector 25A, 24, 33A and 22. Honouring India’s folk and tribal art, this installation celebrates life and also highlights the message of living in harmony with nature. The work depicts Kalpa Tree ‘Kalpavriksha’: The Sacred Wishing Tree, which has been an object of adornment and worship since ancient times. The few scenes from the mural include a celebration of Shri Ganesha Festival by the village folk and the story of the mythological white elephant King Airavata, who carries the Hindu rain God Indra.
