Bangladesh Rickshaw Art

Posted by rod - 07.01.2011

Indigo created an interesting article on the rickshaw art in Bangladesh here are a few images and a small snippet from it. “Bangladeshi rickshaw art is inspired by movie posters and cinema culture that is widespread in the region. Most of the rickshaw artists have their creative roots in Bengali folk art and base their visual art on colorful depictions of actors and movie scenes. Striking colours such as reds, blues and greens are combined with distinctive patterns and motifs taken from nature, including plants, flowers, birds and other animals. Local village scenes are also often depicted through this form of visual art.”

Finished here? Then have a look at these.
