Special Art Car Installation created by junk Car “Future is now”
“Future is now” is an automobile art piece by Cartist to draw attention to seriousness of Covid-19 and climate change globally. The artwork honors the sacrifices of heroic doctors amid pandemic in Rajasthan and alongside it also gives a message to live sustainably and restore the planet. Artwork depicts portraits of doctors who gave their lives while serving to mankind (Dr. S.L.Tolani Jaipur, Dr.Rashmi Sapra Alwar,Dr.K C Garg Jodhpur, Dr Akbar Ali Rangwala Kota , Dr Ajay Sharma).
The artwork was created by artist Srikanth Ranga. In his words, “If we do not save the earth now, we will fail to find doctors to save us later. Society requires urgent attention to counter the impact of climate change and realize the importance of nature in our environment and take actions to co-exist with biodiversity of earth.”
Himanshu Jangid, Founder of Cartist says-
“If one pandemic can destroy economies, upend life’s, then it is a sign we need to rethink and start living sustainably.
We need support from people of all walks of life to keep sustain Cartist. We urge people to contribute and be a part of the virtual festival with a nominal ticket, which can be booked at bookmyshow .The support of people will help us to survive in these difficult times and also to continue to support artists and spread hope through automobile art in society.
Due to pandemic this year, artists are really suffering and finding it hard to cope up with new normal. In a bid to support artists in these difficult times, we are also building a platform on the Cartist website to raise funds for the artist community. You can directly support artists on our platform.
We are committed to finding sustainable solutions for a better world but as I said we are already too late and we should not wait further, rather act now.”
