A Life of Colors

During Spring and early Summer of 2014, the Library showcased paintings by York librarian Anamika Megwalu.

Anamika Megwalu started drawing at a very young age. When she was four years old, her mother observed her creating still-life paintings with chalk and crayons on the balcony of their house in India. She drew anything and anybody she could see while standing tiptoe on the balcony. At age nine, she went to Bangiya Sangeet Parishad, a fine-arts institution affiliated with Rabindra Bharati University, India, to learn techniques and nurture her interest in painting. Four years later, she received her diploma in fine arts before moving to Canada. She has won awards at state and national levels. The exhibition was located on the main floor of the York College Library in the display cases outside the Library’s Administrative Office (3G05).
