Award winner for excellence at the London Art Biennale 2019.
My practice revolves around how I perceive different landscapes and spaces. I like to identify with them at an emotional level such as a historical significance or a personal experience and interpret it in conceptual manner in my work. As a Sri Lankan born artist with a background in architectural studies, I draw inspirations both from my passion for architecture and travelling.
I try to identify the character of each place through my experiences and memories, then pick out distinctive qualities that contribute in making character of the place, and emphasise them in my paintings. However the way I lay these elements and compose my paintings has become a very important and personal process for me. the final work to tell a story.
