Mumbai Based artist Valay Shende created this amazing sculpture of trucks with people in it. This life-size sculpture of truck carries figures of 22 people. He calls this amazing sculpture a “Transit”. It took 18 months for Valay to create such an amazing sculpture made out of thousands of reflective stainless steel disks welded together.
Shende conceived of Transit as a commentary on a dramatic rash of farmer suicides in India over the last decade. The truck’s rearview mirrors display video footage of roadways in London, Mumbai and Dubai as if the vehicle is moving from the perspective of the driver’s seat but in reality, it remains stationary. Transit is currently on view at the Mumbai City Museum.
