A full view of Ruee Gawarikar's “Goddess of Visas,” which is described by the Smithsonian as a “humorous take on the otherwise tedious and often anxiety­ridden 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.” Credit: Smithsonian
