Colorful, floral patterns depict different cultural aspects in the form of beautiful calligraphy of poetic verses as driver’s words of wisdom. This form of art has become a part of Pakistani transport tradition and has become more than just cultural expression; it’s also a deeply rooted tradition. It involves the representation of emotions, passion, love, and care.
It first appeared in the 1940s, on trucks and Lorries driven by transporters who would paint portraits of their spiritual leaders, famous Sufi saints, elements, such as whole landscapes, flying horses, peacocks, etc. These Trucks and Lorries were not only decorated because of their passion in art but also these paintings made the drivers feel like home.
Gul Khan portrays the feeling of love by writing poetic verses and paint human eyes using a vibrant color which is so fascinating that anyone with even the slightest interest in art will be intrigued.
