“In an attempt to give contemporary Indian art a creative stage, we planned to hold the event, which is a collective effort by the Progressive Artists Group of Rajasthan and a few like-minded artists”. The organizers of the Art Fest said.

The state of Rajastan is rich with the legacy of the fine arts with its ‘Shekhawati Murals’, ‘Phad Scrolls’, ‘Karads’ and ‘Rajasthani Miniatures’. Fine Arts were also prompted by the erstwhile royals of Jaipur. The event, which is an effort to take this legacy forward and become the definitive one in the years to come, is the first of its kind in the state.

“We are happy that this Summit emerged from the art community itself and we see this as a Community Festival. We hope that in the coming years it will set new bench marks in the field of art”, said Timmie Kumar, Chairperson of Jaipur Art Summit.
