About the artist
I am a British artist with Sri Lankan roots, currently living in Singapore. With a background in architectural studies, I have been somewhat of a globetrotter over the past decade, having lived in five countries and four continents. As such, my work draws inspiration from multiple cultures, landscapes and landmarks I have experienced personally.
My work highlight my experience of the landscape, its mood, character, lighting and density, through several layers of colour, lines, texture and brush strokes. I zoom in and out of the actual landscape to construct the story in my mind. I try to include the built and natural environments as an interconnected entity, this I believe questions how the spaces occupy within its context and correlate through the art work.
Once I feel sufficient layers are complied, I pick- out the details with lines that I think contributes to the overall composition and highlights its character, then present it in an abstract format for the viewer to solve. An inconclusive situation of the space.
Using these techniques, each of my paintings becomes very unique and each piece on of a kind.
