Unusual artefacts such as military armour, miniature car models, swords and vintage non-firing guns and Hollywood merchandise, customised into artworks make for a visual delight at an upcoming exhibition – Triptych Parade.

The concept that art is not limited to paintings and sculptures is explored through this exhibition. Rashi Goil, founder, says, “We have expanded the boundaries to create an extraordinary sensory experience for our audience.”
