Quotes from jury members
Commenting on the occasion, renowned designers
Renowned illustrator, Vimal Chandran says-
“The basic idea of all art is storytelling and you get inspiration from everything and everything around you. I take inspiration from everything: music, poetry, movies, random conversations basically everything I see around me. What matters most to an artist is how you create a representation of your own experience and weave it into art. Royal Enfield, with all of its heritage and legacy, has been a pioneer in design and known for delivering an exceptional experience. Motorcycle art will be a great opportunity for auto enthusiasts to invoke the artist in them and let their imaginations run wild. I am happy to be a part of this search for “the motorcycle artist” and look forward to seeing how our participants will present their experiences through their art. “
