Self-expression belongs to everyone, everywhere. It’s our chance to impose our personalities on the day to day. Recently, we went around the world looking for the very finest examples of everyday self-expression, resulting in our choice of the world’s best self-expression heroes. In the course of this process we also came across some other really impressive people from across the world.
Whether it’s pimping your ride or creating art from bank notes, we found some awesome self-expression in Japan. First up, meet the Dekotora truckers. “Dekotora” is an abbreviation for “decoration truck”, a form of wildly-pimped truck that drivers soup up both on the inside and out with shiny neon, bright paint and extra rigging. It’s as if the Transformer Optimus Prime drove into a Christmas tree.
