Cartist is India's first and only unique automobile art platform that aims to bring the world of automobiles and art together. The term "Cartist" has been conceptualized from the words, Car (auto, mobility) and Artist (creative mobility) i.e., the emerging trends of an automobile as a creative space of day to day urbanizing society. Cartist is passionately concerned about building a bridge among the art practitioners, automobile, art lovers and society.
