In September, when artist Sangeeta Babani painted the little Nano car, it literally took Mumbai's art connoisseurs and Nano lovers by surprise. But if you missed it in September, October offers you another chance. Babani is currently displaying her works at Cymroza Art Gallery, Breach Candy from 1 to 6 October 2012.
Yes, September was a first of the kind event launched by Tata Motors and called Nano: Art in Motion. It was the auto firm's unique way to show tribute to the fan brigade of the small and lovely car in association with well-known artists. Last month, Babani showed her skills at the Palladium Courtyard of the High Street Phoenix, Mumbai.
The artist interpreted the theme of celebration using her signature blend of realism and abstractionism, set to the vibrant color palette for which her art is known to follow.
Tata Nano fans participated in this celebration of art by registering in the contest "Catch the Art Nano" where keen observers of the Art Nano uploaded their photos of the car, taken during its tour of the city, to a special Facebook application on the Nano’s FB fan page.
As they say—better late than never—so rush and find out in what way Babani has splashed the Nano in strokes and colours!
