New Art on Display : Kiki Rajasekar

Drop over to the Haltom City Public Library to view artist Keerthana (Kiki)  Rajasekar’s original artwork. She has explored two themes - an Indian wedding and glimpses from her travels. She primarily works in oil and watercolor paint mediums, experimenting between photo-realistic attempts of subjects and an artist's eye view of landscapes. Interested in every form, abstract, figurative and pop, she wishes to explore them all in her artwork. 

Kiki Rajasekar's work will be on view for three weeks at the Haltom City Public Library.
