Summary "Much of today's most exuberant, most creative and most telling imagery is all around us, in the street. Nowehere is the visual cornucopia more striking than in India, whose streets are a continuous gallery of images vibrantly portraying the country's rich cultural doversity. From Arabian Sea to Indian Ocean, Northern Himalayas to southernmost tip, the subcontinent's overwhelming profusion of art and design excites the eyes. Street furniture, architecture, transport, billboards, posters, packaging, animals and people are all used as the media of calculated design and spontaneous expression. Ancient and modern, permanent and transient, India's street art has evolved in myriad styles reflecting regional variation and concerns." - back cover
