When my parents lived in Kabul (1973-75) they commissioned an art piece on metal, by a truck artist in Kabul. The piece was approximately 8’x 3’. My brother inherited the piece. I wanted to see if it was possible to have another piece done, as a reflection of this original work.
Through a gallery in Toronto, Canada, my wife made contact with an artist, Haidir Ali, from Karachi, Pakistan. He was willing to produce the work on metal using my drawing as a guide. I took several elements from the original painting, and added a few others to complete the piece.
And within a couple of months, the painting arrived. Memories remain strong.
