As per Ryan Bennett, General Manager at WeWork, India, all the artwork at WeWork Bristol Chowk has been hand painted by WeWork’s Art & Graphics team. He further points out, “The art in the space has taken inspiration from the history of Delhi and is connected to the roots of the city and nearby areas. The artwork near the Hot Desk and Dedicated Desk areas are inspired by Lodhi Gardens – a historic park situated in central Delhi that spreads over 90 acres. The Maruti car artwork peeking into the ground floor from the first-floor corridors is inspired by Maruti Suzuki India Limited who had established a manufacturing plant in Gurgaon in the 1970s, which was one of the main reasons for the city’s economic growth back then. Inspiration for the artwork in the game zone comes from Doordarshan, India’s largest and oldest broadcasting organization which had its humble beginnings in Delhi.”
