In Pictures : Celebrating world's largest street fair dedicated to art

Every year since 2004, Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath has been organising Chitra Santhe, meaning 'a fair of paintings'. Spread across Kumara Krupa Road, Chitra Santhe hosts over 2,500 artists from across India, including painters, sculptors, body artists, cartoonists, graphic artists, among others. With over 4 lakh visitors every year, Chitra Santhe has evolved into one of the largest street fairs in the world. Organised during the first week of January, this year's Santhe was dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi to mark his 150th birth anniversary. Here's a glimpse into the beautiful, energy-packed world of art that Chitra Santhe creates every year.
