MIKA TENNEKOON b. 1985

Born in Sri Lanka in 1985, Mika Tennekoon completed her MFA in Fine Art and has a FCC in printmaking from Khala Bhavan in Santiniketan, India. Tennekoon staged her first solo exhibition at SFG in November 2012. She has participated in group shows in both Colombo and Galle in Sri Lanka as well as in India and Vietnam. Tennekoon presented her work as an illustrator at Pecha Kucha in 2011. The simple translation of day-to-day and emotional events into beautifully constructed illustrations drew SFG to work with her again a few months later on Paper Canvas, a limited edition poster show. Tennekoon has been involved in projects such as the Secret Garden Party and Whale of a time in the UK. Locally she has coordinated Galle Literary Festival workshops, been involved in Colombo Fashion Week and with a collective named COCA (Collective of Contemporary Artists). Tennekoon also works with multiple mediums such as photography, digital sketches and installation.
