August Monthly Display

The Livingston Public Library has on display, some vibrant acrylic paintings that are the creation of local resident Kinjal Gandhi.

An Indian American, Kinjal relocated from India to the United States 20+ years back for august displayfurthering her college education so as to complement her inherent drawing skills and 5-year commercial art degree from an Indian institution. She completed computer animation and digital media technology studies at US universities in Texas and Ohio.

Kinjal took a brief break from employment to raise 2-kids and enjoy parenthood. She started teaching art to young kids and also indulged in her passion for art by painting, mostly in acrylics. She likes to use acrylic colors because “they are quick drying, work easily with different techniques and textures, and are likely to stay the same hue for a long time.”

On display in the Library through August 31st are some of her colorful acrylics done over the years, in a variety of styles, on a variety of subjects. Kinjal is attracted to bright colors and feels color allows her to best express her ideas and thoughts on canvas.
