Default Cartist (automotive art) @ Auto Expo 2020

Big shoutout to khan_sultan for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

Cartist returned to the Auto Expo this year. It is an attempt by a person based out of Jaipur to bring Automobiles & Art together:

Unlike last time, their stall was placed outside. Looks messy and could have been organised better:

This art installation looks like it has been inspired from the Transformers movie:

Some animal sculptures made out of automotive parts on display including a deer...

No points for guessing this car:

...chairs:

Note the table top which uses an old wheel as the base and a wire model of the Jaguar E-Type in the background:

Unfortunately I have no idea about any of the above. However, there was a Cobra replica with a proper V8 for sale a few months back. I don't know if it's still available.

This might sound a bit stupid but do any of these cars actually run?

I won't be able to because I haven't reached the minimum number of posts required to send or receive PMs.
