MUMBAI, INDIA - JULY 09: A taxi driver with the designer who created the design for his taxi on July 9, 2015 in Mumbai, India.
Indian taxis have been given an arty makeover. These amazing creations are the work of Mumbai-based art collective Taxi Fabric, which aims to connect young designers with taxi drivers. The project received global attention when singer Chris Martin used one of the distinctive cars in Coldplays music video for the track 'Hymn for the Weekend'. Last summer, the project was able to raise $16,000 through Kickstarter and is now hoping to expand to other cities in India. Taxi Fabric also plans to work with brands and redesign buses, trains and underground subways and is inviting creatives from all over India to participate in the project.
