Drawing from the city

Tejubehan “Take me to the city,” the young girl whispers to the train, as it passes her dusty village.

Her name is Teju. She is now a middle-aged woman, a migrant worker-turned-artist, and in this book, she reflects on her incredible journey from poverty into the rich inner world of art. This book of richly detailed drawings, featuring Teju’s self-taught style of lines and dots celebrates the life of a gentle, spirited woman who continues to paint her way through difficult times. Drawing from the City is silkscreen-printed by hand.
