The Imperial War Museum will be putting on an exhibition by Mahwish Chishty, who was inspired to combine her decorative Pakistani folk art with the silhouettes of military drones.

The exhibition highlights the way in which the presence of foreign drones over Pakistan has become such a familiar feature of the skies, that they have started to influence the physical, psychological and cultural environment of the country.

Chishty's artworks use a mixture of paintings on wood, paper, and sculptural models of the unmanned drone models, all decorated in a colourful Pakistani folk art.
