Pakistani Vehicle Painting

I love this photo essay over at the Beeb about the long tradition of Pakistani truck painting. Most of the imagery involved has been handed down through the generations and almost all of these guys paint freehand. Awesome. More here.

  3. Really like this. This type of art reminds me of the folk art used on canal boats in the UK.

  4. Awesome. You always manage to find the coolest stuff. It's funny - I can always guess which posts are yours in my feed reader because the style sticks out from the girlier blogs I subscribe to. (But that's a good thing!)
