Every year since 2006 in the remote village of Sujata in Bihar, the Niranjana Public Welfare School organizes the Wall Art festival. Artists from Japan & India spend about 3 weeks in the village and create amazing wall art on the walls of the school. It started when around 50 students from Tokyo Gakugei University donated money to an NGO in India to construct a new school building for the Niranjana Public Welfare School in Bihar, near Bodhgaya.
The initiative helped establish the school through random funds and donations. Within 4 years, over 400 students had enrolled studying from nursery to class 7. One particular artist who participated in the festival three years in a row was Yusuke Asai. Asai made paintings using mud to fill the walls and ceiling of classrooms. Working with children, he collected soils from various sites in the village and mixed them with water to make pigments. Here are some of the best works of art that can be found on the walls of the school:
