Phenomenal Fabrics | Taxi Cab Art Projects

February 12, 2016

Hail a taxi in Mumbai and be dazzled by a fabulous art installation. Young Indian designers have been given the opportunity to create stunning fabrics to pimp the humble cab interior and transform the ride into a sensory experience. 
The Taxi Fabric Project arose from two conundrums, a physical lack of space to showcase the work of emerging artists, and a general malaise and lack of value placed on creativity within Indian society. Generationally, artists have struggled for recognition.
The project is aiming to be fully funded via a Crowdfunding initiative but at present encourages Designers, Illustrators and Graphic Artists to submit Mumbai-themed artwork for approval.
Rickshaws are next on the material makeover list! Farewell to the sticky leather and dull vinyl seats. Beige, brown and neutral interiors become a thing of the past. I can only imagine smiling when travelling in one of these psychedelic mood-adjusters. It's a great incentive for booking a trip to India.
