The Colorful Truck Art of Pakistan.

In Pakistan, trucks are more than just means of transportation, trucks are – moving art pieces.

An indigenous form of art created in Pakistan is Truck Painting. With colorful floral patterns, creative depictions of heroes with calligraphy of poetic verses, this form of art is an established part of Pakistani transport tradition

Many trucks and buses in Pakistan are highly customized and decorated by their owners. Karachi is a major bedecking center for such trucks, though there are other hubs in Rawalpindi, Swat, Peshawar, Quetta and Lahore. Nearly every city in Pakistan has a unique décor. So much time and dedication goes to it, it’s admirable.

I’ve collected a lot of photos from various sites and tumblrs, so – enjoy and feast your eyes on the bright colours and brilliant details.
