The exhibition takes its name from a profound story where the compassionate relationship between a bird and a tree leads to a harmonious coexistence, ultimately transforming into a collection of mesmerizing visual art forms.The ‘Arboreal Haven’ exhibition is a testament to the enduring power of storytelling and art’s ability to breathe life into ancient tales. The fusion of tradition and contemporary vision that defines Mayank Shyam’s creations will captivate viewers.
