Saskia Pintelon (b. 1945, Belgium) is a figurative painter who periodically inclines towards abstraction, text-based work, and collages. Inspired by local and universal issues, politics, and day-to-day concerns, she interprets the collective human experience, environment and the cycle of life with intimate and personal preoccupations. The artist often appropriates, cuts, pastes and remixes images, recycling and repurposing her own work and the found photographic images to create an unlikely patchwork of images that delve into themes related to age, beauty, gender, loneliness, economy internet use, and everything in between often with tongue-in-cheek humour. Saskia Pintelon completed her art education at St Lucas, Ghent, Belgium (1967) where she had also been an art teacher before moving to Sri Lanka in the 1980s. Her work has been exhibited at the Dhaka Art Summit (2016 and 2022), Colombo Art Biennale (2016) and at several solo and group shows in Europe, UAE and in several countries of South and South East Asia.
