Shahid Paracha realized that his calling was truck art at the tender age of 14. Confiding in his uncle, he pleaded with him to introduce him to an ustaad(teacher) who could teach him this art form. Under the tutelage of Ustaad Nazar Hussain he mastered his craft and after seeking due permission from his teacher he has now branched out into his own business by the name of Master Truck Art on Facebook.
Shahid has worked in collaboration with Haider Ali and Phoolji and is indebted to them for including him in their projects. About collaborative projects he feels there is tremendous learning and he always works on such projects alongside his own commissioned works. His own portfolio consists of detailed and refined painting work on different objects including miniature trucks and more recently a motor cycle.
