The ongoing Art Festival, Cartist is the third edition of the festival that is being held at Jai Mahal Palace. With increased participation, this year the festival will be taking a step ahead in providing people a platform to learn, explore and create art. While the concept of merging automobile with art by painting cars is not new to Cartist, the uniqueness this year lies in the fact that vintage cars will be used to carry the legacy of automobile art. These cars will be painted live by some prominent artists of the country. It is noteworthy that such art on vintage cars will be done for the first time not just in Jaipur but the country, as well.

The idea behind this is to spread colors, break the stereotype to paint on canvas and giving the vintage cars a new look. In addition to this, solo art exhibitions, workshops on calligraphy, pottery, street art, wood art, clay modeling, tribal art, photography, among others will be held as well. Prominent artists from all over the country will also be taking several workshops and sessions on different forms of art. This will give one a chance to learn new skills while exploring art.
