Description

Take a ride into the multicoloured world of Bangladeshi rickshaw art and get a glimpse into lives and work of the artists who embellish these vehicles with vibrantly colourful paintings.

This book offers an account, as well as an informed interpretation, of the paintings done by local artists on cycle- and auto-rickshaws of urban Bangladesh, with a socio-cultural background of its artistic traditions. It examines various aspects relating to unique role that the decorated rickshaws play in the Bangladeshi society.

Concise but illuminating essays highlight the unique role of rickshaws in the Bangladeshi way of life and on the various aspects that influence rickshaw art. Containing a vast selection of colour photographic images of heavily painted rickshaws, artists and the art panels, the book is a visual treat.

With photographs by David J Williams.

Praise

“There are plenty of books on street art and taxis or lorries, but rarely does one comes across a sleek volume on a transport system that accounts for 4.5 per cent of a country’s workforce.”
—The Statesman
