the story behind the art work
The amount of decoration on their trucks is overwhelming. Different figures are painted on every crevice of the wooden back and front of the truck. Figures of gods, animals and plants or flowers are common. Green, blue and yellow are often used but the color red seems to dominate all of the other colors. The lines are usually curvy and soft.2. Give your impressions on how Pakistanis use the elements of arts in their artwork
These elements used must have meaning to the people of Pakistan, why else would they paint their trucks like that? It may appear too much for us, but we have to understand that it is another culture and these trucks are part of their uniqueness.3. Compare our Pinoy jeep with their truck art with regards to the color, design, forms, and shapes.
While Pakistanis appear to like more symmetrical designs and generally use paint to decorate their trucks, the owners of jeepneys do not care about symmetry and use stickers for the most part. The jeepneys arent as decorated allover as Pakistan's trucks. Our jeeps do not follow any particular color and the subjects could come from anywhere.
