Pakistan Truck Artby Haider Ali & Ali Salman

Featuring elaborate floral patterns and calligraphy, Truck Art is a popular form of regional decorative art in South Asia. Haider Ali, one of the most prominent truck artists, first gained international attention in 2002 when he painted an authentic Pakistan truck for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. FirstWorks and community partners welcome Haider Ali to PVDFest for a live painting performance: a truck painted and embellished bumper to bumper with symbolic murals and poetry that will represent Providence and Rhode Island communities.
