The art is a tribute to the Aquarius constellation. According to a report by the Indian Express, Janavi aims to educate people and spread awareness about marine life through her art.

She has always had this dream to work on an art tunnel, and once she got the opportunity to do it at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport, she felt very humbled. She was very excited and thrilled to apply for this position because of the location of the project. This tunnel at George Bush Intercontinental Airport is actually the international terminal and Indian travelers mostly travel from here. This site fascinated her so much that she did not even apply for any other locations.

Janavi also participates in talks where she spreads knowledge with her art. Her love and passion for marine life and artwork are truly inspirational.
