Jaipur hosts automobile art fest

Jaipur (Rajasthan), Apr.22 : A four-day automobile art festival titled 'Cartist 2015', which is an initiative by a vintage car enthusiast, saw art students and established artists from across India flock to Rajasthan capital Jaipur.

The festival which stretched from April 18-21, not only exhibited paintings and car installations, but also had the students create art works. Workshops were also organised by prominent Indian artists and photographers like Atul Sinha and Raghu Rai.

The organiser, himself a vintage car restorer for the royal families, said he hoped the festival would promote automobile art, an undiscovered genre.

"This festival is the first of its kind in India; we organised it to encourage the youth and also to promote automobile art. Art students from around India have been invited; 150 students are participating. We have workshops by prominent artists everyday," said organiser, Himanshu Jangid, on Tuesday (April 21).

Students said the festival gave them an outlook to vintage cars and their 'unexplored' history.

"The art of vintage is unique and bringing it out on canvas is very interesting because it's unique. The sports cars we see today aren't all unique but painting history is very intriguing," said an art student, Anisha.

The art festival was a departure from the regular vintage car rallies that take place across India.
