Overwhelmed with the joy of winning this contest, Sana Sapra said, “I don’t know what to say. It all happened pretty quickly for me. I had to make the illustrations within a week span and had to put in all my efforts in that. I really want to thank my teachers especially Gaurav Mandal who guided me and also helped me by teaching Photoshop to make these illustration possible. Also, I am very thankful to all the family support, friends’ likes and people who believed in me. I am super excited to go to Paris and learn more from this reputed global platform.”

Sana spoke about her illustrations and explained about each one of them:
“My inspiration for this piece is my belief that our mind holds the key to limitless possibilities. Every evolution has exponential timing it’ll be half as long till the next breakthrough that blows our mind. It’s up to the people to brave on with experimentation move forth the species by unlocking our imagination.”
“Je suis Charlie! I dedicate my design to the cause of Charlie Hebdo which is a satirical French newspaper whose offices were recently attacked for publishing cartoons that were deemed offensive by extremist groups.”
“I am inspired by the beauty and the smell of the pines. Way up in the mountains on a high timberline, there’re twisted old pines. The wind there is bitter, it cuts like a knife. It keeps the pinecones holding on for dear life.”
A great achievement by this young Pearlite. Way to go Sana!!!
