Awhile ago, I wrote a post about the Truck Art in Pakistan. The art of decorating trucks, buses, tractor trolleys and even cars is something that is unique in the world. The vehicle owners take pains in getting their vehicles painted and ornamented to give a glossy and colourful look when these roll down on the roads.
The painters are almost completely illiterate people, but they come up with designs which are simple amazing and awe inspiring.
The popularity of the art can be ascertained from the fact that during Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006, Karachi to Melbourne Tram – a W-11 mini bus that one sees on the roads of Karachi, heavily decorated using bright and eye-catching colours, was taken to Australia to introduce to the Commonwealth countries the indigenous art of Pakistan.
Herein under are some more photographs of the Truck Art, which I cam across at Funzug and am sharing it for my viewers.
