9789380340173: Drawing from the City

Art and design take center stage in this carefully crafted, elegant, artisanal book. This stunning autobiographical art book recounts self-taught artist Tejubehan’s journey from an impoverished childhood in rural India, through her family’s efforts to improve their lot in a tent city in Mumbai, and into her adulthood, when she lived as a singer and artist with her husband. The direct, unadorned text has an immediacy that reveals its roots as an orally narrated life story As a physical artifact, it draws attention to its creation with stiff pages and fragrant, tactile inks A unique offering that presents readers with arresting artwork and a compelling life story.” Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

"Self-taught artist Tejubehan weaves a partly autobiographical, partly escapist, whimsically illustrated tale of a woman trapped between unimaginable poverty and a wildly imaginative inner world in a patriarchal society." - Maria Popova for the New York Public Library bookstore

"...more exquisite and born out of a more moving personal story than just about any book I’ve come across." Brainpickings.org

"Perfect for anyone interested in printmaking, and would make an extra-special gift for the budding feminist in your family." Nashville Scene

A large-format, silk-screened, hand-printed masterpiece. A Los Angeles Times Holiday Gift Pick.

About the Author:

Teju Behan is a singer and self-taught urban folk artist from Ahmedabad in western India. She comes from a community of wandering musicians who in times past sang for a living. A chance encounter with a contemporary Indian artist led her to art. Along with her husband and creative partner, Ganesh Jogi Teju Behan developed a unique style of drawing that has won international acclaim. Drawing from the City is her first book.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-8-Presented in an elongated, oversize format, this intriguing book follows the life of Teju Behan, who grew up in a poor family of a lower caste in rural India. When a drought forced the family to the city, Teju married Ganesh Jogi, who supported his family by singing in the streets. But just as that street singing tradition was dying out, Ganesh met an artist who encouraged him to draw. Ganesh proved to be talented and encouraged his wife to try her hand at it. Teju did, and it was as if she has been freed from all the constraints of her life. Her art allowed her to be whomever she wanted, to travel wherever she wished, and to lose herself endlessly in her vivid imagination. This story documents her life both before and after she discovered her talent and serves as an inspiration to women everywhere. Her beautiful ink drawings rely on the use of dots and lines and are remarkably full of movement and life. The text is printed in brown to offset the black of the inked drawings. This is a wonderful book for art students or for those interested in exploring other cultures through art.-Joan Kindig, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.
