Whenever I visit Alisa Burke painted creations it always remind me About our Traditional Truck Art..have a look below & enjoy :)

 How Creative!!!
The base of this peacock was a plain steel frame but with the effort of painters,now its wonderful piece of art..isn’t it lovely..
they use lots of materials besides the paints,for embellishing,like colorful tapes,mirrors,shining stickers,beads,glitter & sometimes fabric cuts also..its a thick & lengthy procedure to design a truck..

    I remember seeing those beautiful trucks when we last came to Pakistan (1992!!!). They are still just has amazing. You know, on our trip to Dubai last year, we also saw similarly painted boats on the Dubai Creek unloading Pakistani and Irani cargo. They were exotically beautiful as well!

    Gorgeous! And how nice that you are proud to be Pakistani. So many people are unhappy with their countries right now. What you must realize is what a good job you are doing giving the rest of us who have never gotten to visit there a glimpse into the beauty of your country and a glimpse into the beauty of your people through you.

    When we lived in Panama in the early 70’s they had small buses that were painted similarly called “Chivas” (goats.) When we visited in 2005 there were no more “Chivas” but I did see a few large buses and trucks that were decorated. I hope the Pakistanis realize what a treasure they have and that artists continue this beautiful tradition.

    Querida amiga: como ya sabes estuve ausente de mi país durante un tiempo y no pude visitar ni enterarme de las publicaciones que han hecho los blogs.
    Hoy y con mas tiempo me he dedicado a mirar tu blog y encuentro trabajos maravillosos .
    Esta entrada es muy ilustrativa porque nos da a conocer parte de tu cultura que por cierto es algo única. Verdaderos artistas del color y diseño.
