The sale proceeds will be 100% donated to PM CARES Fund for COVID-19 under “Cartist against Covid-19.”

Secondly, to support young artist community, we will also conduct an online exhibition and online sale of paintings created by these artists. 100% sale proceeds will be transferred directly to artist’s account in these difficult times to support them in the future.

Himanshu Jangid says ,While restoring cars, I was introduced to art through my keen observations on the wall of royals and industrial houses. I instantly fell in love. Coming from a middle-class family, I was never been introduced to art nor we got the opportunity at school and college to experience.  I was lucky to find few young artists in Jaipur and around Rajasthan I told them I want to build a small art collection .Then slowly I realized that these artists livelihoods depend on me purchasing art from my savings. I wanted to expand my vision to support them in a sustainable manner. That period was the genesis of Cartist festival in Jaipur, that provided these young artists a platform to showcase their talent and create an artistic beginning in the world of automobiles.
