With close to 8.5 million trucks plying on Indian roads, the trucking industry is India’s backbone when it comes to the supply of essential services. Indian trucks are also known for another thing — their fantastical art! For truckers in India, having a kaleidoscope of colours, art, slogans and symbols is almost a rite of passage. The bulky body of the truck becomes a mode of expression, not only for them but also for many truck artists in the country. VICE meets Nafees Ahmad Khan, a truck artist from Indore, a city in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. We also meet truck drivers stationed at Nafees’ workshop to understand why they get their trucks custom painted and what the iconography means for them.
