VR Surat unveils life-sized sculptures
Shopping mall, Virtuous Retail (VR) Surat on Thursday marked the opening of its first 50 stores by unveiling two larger-than-life art installations by sculptor Arzan Khambatta at Magdalla Plaza, here.
Yazdi Karanjia, noted theatre personality and VR Surat's Cultural Ambassador, was present at the event.
"Art in public spaces should be simple and playful. Both 'Majja Ni Life' and 'Jaman Jalso' are fun sculptures, with a sense of movement to them. They capture everyday family scenes, such as shopping and going on picnics, adding to the visual character of VR Surat," said Khambatta.
Sumi Gupta, Director, Virtuous Retail, said, "We are delighted to collaborate with Arzan Khambatta as we continue to be inspired by Surat's vibrant culture and rich heritage. What makes this partnership even more special is Arzan's familial connection with Navsari - Surat's twin city."
Anupam Yog, Marketing Director, Virtuous Retail, said, "It is wonderful to have Yazdi Karanjia join us on this special milestone for VR Surat. Following the resounding response to the Dumas Art Project, we remain committed to expanding Surat's cultural capital while bringing the best lifestyle brands to the city."
