Architect Pramod Pendse's first solo art exhibition combines his love for architecture, painting and travelling.

Titled On the Threshold, it includes watercolour and pen and art paintings that focus on the mystique of thresholds, and depict doors, windows, balconies and architectural facades.

Celebrating unsung traditional master craftsmen who carved life into rock and timber, the paintings were inspired by North Indian Havelis, Paschim Bonga’s Rajbaris, Maharashtrian Wadas, and Chettiyar mansions in Tamil Nadu.

Check out the elegant floral motifs, arcades, brackets, roofs, grill designs and chajjas and gawk at the iconic Darbar Hall in the Mysore Palace, the elegance of the balconies of Gujarati havelis, the craftsmanship of the gable roof at the Padmanabhapuram Palace and the haunting beauty of the Nana Phadnis Wada’s windows which beckon you to a lost world.
