RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The partition of India and Pakistan marked the start of the truly Pakistani tradition of decorating vehicles. Artisans in the new country were deeply conscious of their new national identity. The Islamic motif of a crescent and star started appearing on buses soon after partition. Qur’anic verses and the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) started appearing a few years later. Pakistanis were proud of the Islamic traditions of Mughal art and architecture. Mughal motifs, designs and styles greatly influenced truck decoration in Pakistan. In the early years, Pakistani artisans were reluctant to paint human figures and portraits on vehicles, given that orthodox Islam does not encourage such work. The taboo did not last long. Portraits of freedom fighters, sportsmen, film actors, and national heroes were added to the repertoire of truck decorators in the late fifties. At about the same time, birds and animals became popular with drivers who had a special liking for peacocks, lions and snakes. The craft of decorating and painting trucks has continued to evolve. The work done today involves creativity, imagination, cultural understanding, and aesthetic skills. It is, therefore, a veritable art form, known all over the world as Pakistani Truck Art.

CHALLENGE:
The consultation and interview with the truck driver is considered to be the most important part in the entire process of producing this video.
