About this title:

Synopsis: The Artful Life of R. Vijay explores the unique collaboration between an American photographer and an Indian artist with an approach that is unique in itself. Though the American, Waswo X. Waswo, is the conceptualizer of this captivating series, it is the miniaturist, R. Vijay, from whose perspective this book is written. Art historian Annapurna Garimella brings her passion for vernacular Indian art to scrutinize and unfold the complex terrain a traditional Indian painter has needed to navigate while entering a foreign and contemporary mindset. The worlds of R. Vijay and Waswo meet in this volume, as they do in the miniatures themselves, with a mixture of harmony and incongruity. As the esteemed art historian Kavita Singh writes in her preface: "It is a collaboration that bends genres and plays ironically, intelligently, with history and contemporaneity, identity and masquerade, bravado and confession. It is fitting that this collaboration should be the subject of such a thoughtful and erudite book, written by the brilliant art historian and curator Annapurna Garimella."

About the Author: Dr. Annapurna Garimella is a Delhi-based art historian and designer. Her research focuses on the history and practices of vernacular art forms in India after Independence, and late medieval Indic architecture.

She heads Jackfruit, an organisation with a specialised portfolio of design, research and curatorial projects for artists, museums, government and private institutions as well as non-profits, and is the Founding and Managing Trustee of Art, Resources and Teaching Trust, a not-for-profit organisation that runs a public art library, conducts independent research projects and does teaching and advisement for college and university students and the general public.
