    Hansika Herath

    Hidden Story 19, 2020

    Hansika Herath uses wood cut prints as part of her practice. She draws on Sri Lanka's matriarchal society, the women mostly the core subject in her work, often naked and combined with nature to portray harmony.

    Anup Vega

    Sigiriya, 2020

    My creative practice explores the nature of illusion. From a young age, growing up amid the rocky outcrops of Kurunegala, Sri Lanka, I began watching the light and the way it played with shapes, textures and the natural world. This has informed my work ever since, whether focused on vast landscapes or concepts of self. - Anup Vega

  • Mayantha Perera, A last prayer of Ehelapola Kumarihami , 2020

    Mayantha Perera

    A last prayer of Ehelapola Kumarihami , 2020
    In this painting, Mayantha Perera tries to capture the agony and strength of Ehelepola Kumarihami just before the day of their execution (May 16, 1814). This painting depicts the last ruler of the kandyan kingdom, King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe who believed that Ehelepola Adikaram who was a courtier of the kingdom of Kandy was against him due to false information. Therefore, the Ehelepola's wife and children were brutally executed by the king.
