Prakash Bal Joshi, senior artist from Mumbai who was a special invitee to the Live Painting event says :
Pune is prime city for cycling in India . The event proved very useful to inculcate cycling spirit in Pune to bring it on par with Amsterdam where cycling and art exist together. It was very live art camp where more than 50 artists were involved in painting live , depicting their concern over degradation of environment. Message through colour and forms was clear at Empress Garden - Go Green
