The Silk Route Art Transit Map with Divergent Routes by artist Valentina DuBasky is
a contemporary transit-style map that follows DuBasky’s travels across many of the interconnected Silk Routes where she researched Buddhist cave paintings and ancient
art to prepare for her own “modern-day, cave-wall paintings and prints.” The map
includes twenty-three interconnected lines that branch out from major hubs, and three
hundred and forty stops that represent cities and ancient sites where art flourished and
new artistic styles developed. The map was created in Adobe Illustrator and printed as a
limited edition, archival, giclée print on Hahnemuhle rag paper.
