Nuwan Nalaka
October 11, 2017

Nuwan Nalaka is an emerging artist in Sri Lanka who is better known for his watercolor on paper works that the artist presented in solo exhibitions in Colombo, Galle and Kandy, prior to his departure to India. Nalaka has also participated in numerous shows in India since 2003. The artist is back after having completed his Masters in Fine Art at the Rabindra Bharati University in Kolkata, India. Of his time in India, Nalaka says, "This was an experience that was one of the most important for me to-date, moving from my native land to interact and understand modern Indian culture. Over the past decade I lived in an atmosphere where religion and culture differed greatly from Sri Lanka." These cross-boundary experiences have had a profound impact on his recent work. Sutra by Nuwan Nalaka is free and open to the public from 12th October till the 26th October 2017.
