Truck art is a popular form of indigenous art used widely on trucks, buses and other vehicles across the country. Featuring vibrant floral patterns, slogans, bright coloured text and calligraphy, truck art has increasingly come to be known as Pakistan’s cultural identity.

Truck drivers use the unique art style to distinguish their vehicles from others. Neon coloured animals, poetry, mirrors and plastic ornaments are all incorporated in truck art; which is not only restricted to trucks and buses, but is also seen on rickshaws, vespas, fruit carts and even walls.

Here we look at 21 exquisite pictures of truck art in Pakistan.
