Last week, I posted 3 pictures of Tata Safari painted in an abstract style for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Abstract captured at the Cartist Automobile Art Festival exhibition in Jaipur. The event was organized in a garden that was recently opened for the public. Those three pictures posted earlier didn’t do justice with the exhibition as there was much more to it.I’m posting some more images from the Cartist Exhibition. People with creative and artistic minds will surely enjoy these pictures of unique creations; so will automobile lovers. Do let me know about your views through the comments below.
Let me start with a picture of the venue.
Artists giving finishing touches to the venue.
Due to the onset of summers, Sun is quite harsh. Therefore, the paintings were displayed in gazebos style tents to combat the scorching heat. Good move!
Artists were given due acknowledgment by placing artist information boards.
The exhibition also had a section dedicated to the logo of the finest automobile brands like Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Bentley, etc.
I found a very interesting art installation which drew my attention! Unfortunately, No one was around to explain its story. Let me call this “Red Head”
Here is a close up of “Red Head”

Parked in a row were ten hand-painted Tata Nano cars. In case you have never heard about Tata Nano, it was a benchmark standard in Indian automobile history with a launch price of USD 1500. It was a highly publicized innovation termed “frugal engineering” from an Indian automobile manufacturer Tata Motors, who also owns World’s top brands like Range Rover and Jaguar.

Let me wrap this up with the most striking picture as well as creation!
I had posted a write-up on the Cartist event during Resurgent Rajasthan a few months ago, featuring hand-painted auto-rickshaws (Tuk-Tuk as some people prefer to call it). Click here to read this post.
