    Default Moto Art Show: India’s first gallery art exhibit dedicated to motorcycling

    Bangalore is playing host to India’s first gallery art exhibition dedicated to art inspired motorcyclists titled “First of its Name”. The event hosted at the Peepletree Art Gallery from the 31st of March 2018, will continue till 28th of April 2018. In this debut Moto Art show, 12 multi-disciplinary moto artists from all across India will be showing their artworks.

    Moto Art Show founder and curator, Mallika Prakash said, “Paintings, illustrations, metal sculptures using bike parts, films, performance, you name it and we have it. This is the first time such an event is happening in India with so much motorcycle art in one place. We will have around 80 unique pieces of art for sale. There’s something for everyone in this exhibit if you love motorcycles. We want to combine the artsy and the biker lifestyles and make lives a little less ordinary”.

    Moto Art Show

    Mallika Prakash is a biker, new mom and an engineer turned moto artist aka @mallikamoto. With roots in Delhi, Mallika started riding in San Francisco towards a self-propelled art career. She has shown and sold her work in various galleries in and around San Francisco.

    Nidhi Agarwal
    , Moto Art Show’s other half and Partner in Design, is an automobile designer by profession, moto artist by passion and likes to call herself a Motoholic. Currently based in Japan, Nidhi has worked with International brands like Royal Enfield, Honda 2 Wheelers and Yamaha Motors as a designer and founded Motoholic Works® in her free time.

    Moto Art Show is making a statement and riding strongly through the headwinds of the Indian art world. It brings with it a new genre “motoart” to the forefront. It aims to give moto artists a voice in the real world and breed a new wave of art lovers.

    Speaking on this occasion Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India, Mr Vimal Sumbly commented “We are delighted to partner with MotoArt Show; it encapsulates and celebrates the same spirit - the spirit of '59 - that lives on in every Triumph Modern Classic. 1959 marked the beginning of a cultural explosion and the birth of a new attitude to live life to the full; an attitude that inspired a revolution in music, art, and culture. The original, iconic ’59 Triumph Bonneville encapsulated this spirit and passion for life, and inspired legions of riders, from movie stars to teenage café racers, and a whole motorcycle movement. 59 years on, the spirit that created the Bonneville is still the same today.”

    Superb stuff and a positive indication that motorcycling in India is maturing and coming of age. I wish all the participants a successful show and hope these exhibitions are held all over the country.
