About Street Art Pakistan

Master Paints is holding a street art competition titled ‘Lets Paint Pakistan’.

According to Master Paints, Street Art Pakistan is an initiative taken by the team behind Artistan to spread awareness against illegal wall chalking practice in different parts of Pakistan.

They are encouraging Pakistanis by letting them paint positive themes on the walls to depict colorful stories of the country.

Starting in 2010 as a competition, Street Art Pakistan engaged students from various institutes to paint the culture, traditions and positive facets of Pakistan on the walls of Lahore. Till now Street Art Pakistan has successfully organized six seasons of the Street Art Competition (SAC) covering 16 cities of Pakistan (Lahore, Multan, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Sialkot, Sargodha, Chakwal, Quetta, Thatta, Matiari, Hala, Larkana, Mirpur Sakru).  More than 21,000 participants from 100 different educational institutes painted more than 3000 walls (approx 321,100 square feet area)of Pakistan with themes that included Truck art, Education, Peace and Freedom, Provincial Culture, Gates of Lahore and Monuments, Blood Donation, Fight against Dengue, Cleanliness and Culture of Pakistan. These competitions also led to distinguished achievements for the Street Art team including the Largest Wall in the history of Pakistan and the Largest Painting in the history of the world. Going beyond, our team strived for the Guinness World Record for the Largest Painting by Numbers with the collaboration of Punjab Government and Master Paints and ended up making history.

Our team has also worked with an NGO in Sindh, promoting education in the form of Street Art in 3 districts namely Larkana, Thattha and Matiari. Recently, our team painted the Largest Mural in the History of Pakistan on a single theme, that is, Timeline of the History of Pakistan Army from 1914-2014 (World War 1 to Operation Zarb-e-Azb), celebrating a hundred years of 10th Division of Army. The mural is 30,000 square feet in size, and is painted on the walls of MS Garrison Underpass, Lahore.

For Street Art Pakistan, this is just the beginning of a far-stretched journey along multicolored landscapes featuring brick walls narrating the beautiful stories of Pakistan.
