Five greatest artists — Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and Johannes Vermeer — came alive on a Mini Cooper at World Art Dubai 2021 last weekend, thanks to the skills of doodle artist Sijin Gopinathan. The Indian artist, who works as a creative designer in Dubai, made the live doodle sketch of the masters as a tribute. "I've been following the work of these masters since childhood," he said. "As an artist I got bored doing the same thing again and again. So I used my car as a canvas for the huge mural in black ink," he added. Revealing the secret be-
hind the special art work, Sijin, who is also the founder of The Artist Network, said the design could be peeled off any time as he had used a peel-able coating on the car before using permanent markers for drawing. Apart from Sijin's car masterpiece, the four-day fair included Rangoli art by Prachi Sharma, live spray painting by street artist Dina Saadi, art made entirely out of coffee by Raha Coffee Art, and live music by Melodica Dubai.
