Love of colour and street life lie behind her recent decision to create a triptych of lorry portraits. Not an obvious choice of subject matter at first, you might think. But in India every flat surface is a potential canvas, she says. If it stays still long enough to be painted on, it will be, with a mesmerising mix of folk art and cultural messaging. Lorries are the plus-size epitome of that, a visual cacophony in technicolour trundling across the subcontinent.
Almost invariably, the tailgate is painted with the imperious advice Blow Horn, offered as a warning and an encouragement to overtaking drivers. The alternative, no less ubiquitous shout-out from the rear of the lorry is Great India set among a cloud of patriotic curlicues.
