Chishty wondered if there was a different way to see these hard-edged war machines. The result was Drone Series: a project which turns these weapons into works of Pakistani Folk Art, by employing traditions such as miniature painting and 'Truck Art', where haulage vehicles are highly decorated. This second skin turns the drones into objects of beauty, whilst clothing them in Pakistani culture.
