Jaipurites are all set to witness Auto Art by turning the Auto Rickshaws into Mobile Art Gallery.
About 100 autos have been painted to display the Culture of Rajasthan and to promote folk art.
These autos are already on road and are available to visitors at
Sanganer Airport, Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort, Jal Mahal And Albert Hall.
Automobile Art, an art form which is yet to spread its roots in India, is being promoted by Jaipur Municipal Corporation and is assisted by Mr. Himanshu Jangid from Cartist. Mr. Himanshu has always been fascinated with automobiles and thus decided to take his passion forward and started working as a vintage car restorer with his company United Restorations. He has been in this business for more than a decade and within this time period, he has been able to build his unique clientele in this not so familiar business concept. Realizing the potential and creativity of these artists, he soon came up with ‘Cartist’, which brings together artists of various genres and styles with an aim to foster their artistic pursuits through various events which gives them exposure to show their talents.
Resurgent Rajasthan, the biggest investor meet of both national and international investors being held in Jaipur is a great platform to promote this non pareil art form. It will not only be a symbol of heritage for guests arriving from outside but also attraction for masses and will create awareness for preserving the heritage.
The most charming event of this Auto Art Festival is that autos will be meandering all over the map of Jaipur, hand painted on the theme of Rajasthan’s heritage and culture very soon. Young artists from schools and other institutions will show their creative style and showcase Rajasthani Heritage on these autos. BFA, MFA and passed out students from various universities would be participating in this event and two autos would be sent to all participating schools for painting. The best Auto Artist will receive a cash prize by the Government of Rajasthan. This will be an innovative style of depicting automobile art and at the same time will connect masses with the art.
All the art enthusiasts have been showing great curiosity in this event as they even get the opportunity to get their name permanently penned on their own painted autos. The various schools participating in this event are Maharani Gayatri Devi, Step by Step, Subodh Public School, etc. The various institutions and universities who also wish to engage with this event are University of Rajasthan, School of Arts, etc.
The other appealing marvels of this festival would be Vintage Cars like Morgan, Morris, Jaguar, Mercedes, etc, paintings on the theme of ‘Series of Dreams Car’ and various art installations. All these attractions along with the painted autos would be placed at 5 prominent places in the city i.e., Airport, Elbert Hall, Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal and Amber Fort on 20th , 21st and 22nd November 2015. Many promotional events have also been undertaken for this festival which are Painting Competitions, Photography Competitions, etc.
The main theme for this Festival is the promotion of artists, people who have great vision and imagination powers, who love playing with colors but are normally not being supported by their families and society. So this is a stroke of luck for these budding artists to brandish their talents and make a mark in the society.
