Student artist Janhawi Kelkar ’13 says she is most inspired by motion and imagination. Featured is a painting of a man getting his face painted at a Carnival in Brazil. Kelkar says she was especially drawn to this picture because of the asymmetry and bright colors. Also, both the hand and the face were cut off, which leaves more to the imagination and allows room for interpretation. This painting was also a challenge for Kelkar because of the amount of detail, and though “[She] loves art, [she doesn’t] find it particularly relaxing… [she] finds it kind of stressful. There is always

a lot to pay attention to.”
