What's on now
Rangdey Pakistani Truck Art by Durre Sameen
Artist Durre Sameen's work is inspired by Rangdey Pakistani truck art. The practice dates back to 1920 when public transport became a highly significant part of urban culture on the sub-continent. It continues to be an integral part of Pakistani transport and culture today. Come and see how, using beaten stainless steel and 'chamak patty' - a highly durable fluorescent tape - Durre creates colourful and incredibly detailed pieces including mirror frames, coasters, ornamental boxes and mobiles. On until 31 January.
