Kanesh Thabendran  b.1988

Visual artist Kanesh Thabendran is hailed for his agentive stance through stylized technique of photo cutting in exposing the angst of post-war Sri Lanka. His work facilitates the role of a bold and politically awakened advocate who not only critiques but informs of the ravages of war and its aftermath, shedding light in a creative manner whilst functioning as an artistic propaganda. Kanesh’s roots lay in the Northern part of the country, where the atrocities of a thirty-year civil war were prominent. Earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts (Art and Design) from the University of Jaffna in 2015, Kanesh embarked on his artistry with a vision of delineating a personal narrative that speaks volumes, reverberating on a larger scale in the hearts of thousands affected by the war in the North.
