Imagine sliding into a taxi and being surprised to see that you are sitting on top of a bright blue landscape with carefully painted horses leaping across the seat. In front of you, the blue background continues behind a group of faceless figures. Two of them hold an unfurling piece of fabric that reads ‘Quit India.’ While you are taking in all the details of the design you will feel relaxed and forgot that you are sitting in a taxi and would not want the journey to end.
This is the experience of riding in a cab transformed by Taxi Fabric. The organization pairs talented designers with taxi drivers in Mumbai to turn the interior of cabs into works like Kunel Gaur’s intricate “A Century of Revolt.”
