Believe me, this is no philosophical ‘About Us’ page of any website :D
Our Story is pretty simple and out there. Maaz has always been business minded and I, Qurratulain (his annoying wife) was always a 9-5 geek! We were hardly on the same page EVER. In the last 4-5 years we have been struggling with various ideas (we have many:p) to put forward to the world. But nothing was working in our favour, something or the other was falling apart. The only thing that we both have in common is ‘Patience’. Yes, we patiently waited for around 7 years to get married to each other so you can imagine the level of patience we have haha!
Well, God always has something amazing planned for everybody. And Last year, 2019 had an amazing opportunity for us. Maaz met this person on his way to work one day and found out that he is an amazing artist. He went to see his workshop and met his amazing team (Very lively people I must say). The very next week we both went to his workshop and were taken aback by the amazing work he has been producing in Pakistan. It was beyond amazing. And all of it was hand painted. We, especially loved witnessing a lot of female workforce in his workshop.
And ‘Tingggg’ there came the idea of taking Pakistani hand painted truck art to each and every corner of our country and to the world!!
We both are old school; not very cool I must say. Our motto to live life has always been to live in the present and enjoy what we have on our plate. And also share some part of our plate with the needy.
Maaz is an environmentalist and is always worried about the planet. Everything else comes second to him (Even his family). He is the weather guy among his friends haha I am not even kidding. He is always updating his Facebook Status about when its going to rain or when is the next cyclone coming :D One of his dreams is to chase a Hurricane. Like Seriously Dude?
So one thing he was very particular about when choosing the products was them being Eco-friendly, Vegan and Environmentally sound. And that’s what UrbanTruckArt is about. Its about taking the vibrancy of life to every nook and corner of the world.
