The challenge provides an opportunity for artists to showcase their creativity and storytelling skills through their artworks.

In celebration of World Art Day, Times of India Metro Supplements announces the launch of the ‘My City. My Art.’ Challenge, an initiative aimed at spotlighting artistic talent and reimagining cities through creative lenses. This challenge invites artists from all backgrounds to envision their cities in imaginative and captivating ways.

Participants are encouraged to unleash their creativity by reimagining their cities through artistic expression. From fantastical scenarios to whimsical concepts, the possibilities are endless. The challenge offers a platform for artists to showcase their ingenuity and storytelling prowess through their artworks.
