'Indigenius Artists – India', presents the stunning indigenous art traditions of India and the communities in the villages where they originated. These contemporary artists are recognised on an equal platform with leading contemporary African, Oceanic and Aboriginal artists and their artworks are in the collections of art lovers and museums around the world – in the US, Europe, Japan and Russia. The book features 11 indigenous art genres that have received critical acclaim from international art scholars. This hard cover book has 328 pages illustrated with artworks. The photographer Salamat Husain has an eye for photographing art creatively, being the grandson of the legendary artist M.F. Husain. The art director Fravashi Aga graduated from the London Art School and has designed books for leading Indian corporates (such as the book on The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and Indian Hotels Company) and British publishers. I was leading the editorial team of The Taj Magazine for 24 years, a travel and culture magazine on India for high networth clientele of Indian Hotels Company. The book's design is contemporary, the essays are easy to follow yet scholarly while the photography includes artists at work in their villages as well as their paintings. At the end of the book is a list of artists and their contact details so that they can receive commissions directly.
