Nuwan Nalaka’s (b.1981, Sri Lanka) versatility is reflected in his skillful handling of a wide range of mediums and techniques such as tempera, water colours, Indian ink and wash painting. His work often delves into themes of Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, examined through a combination of visual metaphors, iconography, floral and vegetal forms. Nuwan’s visual style is influenced by folk and traditional painting techniques and styles of both India and Sri Lanka, and exhibits a seamless ability to shift between calligraphic, bold brush strokes and intricately detailed work. He completed his Masters in Fine Art (2013) at the Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata, India. His work has been exhibited at numerous exhibitions in both India and Sri Lanka.
