Bhajju Shyam, Gita Wolf, Sirish Rao
Bhajju Shyam – a brilliant artist from the Gond tribe in central India – was commissioned to paint the walls of an Indian restaurant in London, and spent two months in the city. The book that emerged from the journey is a visual travelogue of his first encounter with a western metropolis. With radical innocence and great sophistication, Bhajju brings the signs of the Gond forest to bear on the city, turning London into an exotic jungle.
