Laila Sharmeen did a 10x 40 feet street painting at the Open University of Umag during the World Art Games in Croatia in 2013. She decorated her street painting with traditional Bengali motifs of flower, fish and bird and Bangla alphabets to evoke the quintessential colours of Bengal and also pay tribute to Bangladesh’s language movement. She drew the basic design for the street painting with chalk, explained the colour scheme to artists from India, the USA, Colombia, Finland, Netherlands, and Croatia and then invited them to apply paint on the work. She also engaged people from local community and tourists visiting Umag to turn her project into a collaborative-community painting. The scene of the street painting was carnivalesque, especially because of the Pokko Cherri Band from Malaysia that played foot tapping numbers.
