Blue Hathi, Jaipur, India (2004)

Following my visit to Indonesia, I traveled to northern India in December 2004. The main purpose of this visit was to meet up with my friend Sarita and attend her cousin Vishal's wedding. However, I also was interested in initiating a project in India to paint rickshaws or autorickshaws similiar to my project painting becaks in Indonesia.

The opportunity presented itself in Jaipur, Rajasthan. However, rather than tricycles, I ended up painting two-wheelers -- a motorbike and a scooter at a textile shop, Mughal India Carpets & Textiles. The motorbike belonged to Sonu (or Sonny as he's called) and the scooter belonged to Rajesh.
