Cartist, a Jaipur based organisation that turns cars into rolling art is in Mumbai for an exclusive exhibition from November 17-19, 2017. The exhibition will be held at the Jijamata Udyan (or Mumbai Zoo) grounds in Byculla, Mumbai and is open to public. The organisation, founded by car collector and restorer Himanchu Jangid uses cars as a canvas to paint on rolling murals depicting both the city that the car is painted in along with other art based themes that also usually have some sort of social meaning. Cartist also uses local artists to create absolutely exquisite works of art with an automotive theme woven into them along with other forms of art like sculptures and installation art with both an automotive and social theme.
Cartist has been on a roadshow across the country starting from Jaipur, to Ahemdabad and now Mumbai where the organisation will showcase a whole variety of modern art pieces including two must-see 1:1 scale hand made frames of a Jaguar E-Type and a Volkswagen Beetle.
Other notable art pieces include the Nano Art cars which are painted to both notable modern Indian artists are art students from across the country reflecting the artists psyche in terms of current society and strong social messages.
Cartist will also be painting several cars live at the exhibition including some rare and noteworthy classic cars that have been donated by well wishers as well as Mr.Jangid’s personal collection. A few months ago, we had the chance to go and experience Cartist at their annual exhibition in Jaipur, and if you like your cars and you like art, this exhibition is a must see!
