Om Puri Dino art show opening at JW Marriott “Cars are not just machines. They are people with a mind of their own, they rev up to your touch, love attention and the more you love them, the more is their lifespan. There is nothing like curling inside the car, within its embrace and no longer feeling alone. It always lets you take total control once you are in the driving seat, never mind its size!”
This in short, sums up artist Pratik Sharma’s journey of growing up with cars. Followed by graduation from Raffles Designing Institute in Singapore, Pratik Sharma translated his childhood fantasies of steering the mean machines into breathtaking Carscapes!
