Goddess of Visas
Ruee Gawarikar's Goddess of Visas is a humorous take on the otherwise tedious and often anxiety-ridden process of applying for a work visa. Accordingly, the style of the work is exaggerated, ironic and dramatic.
Drawing is an important aspect of Gawarikar's works―hence the dominance of black. The colors are reminiscent of the calendar art images of gods and goddesses in India.
