Every country has something special
something that makes it unique. I call this set of characteristics "the
country code" and as an artist, I always try to de-cypher it and show
it in my paintings.
I am continuously looking for better ways to depict the code.
Sri-Lanka overwhelmed me with its bright colours, its ancient
culture and importantly with the paradox of its colour scheme. In most
countries, its the bright colours that stand out, but not here. Here
the reverse is true. There are so many bright colours here that they
merge and create the background environment and the dark colours really
stand out instead.
My first paintings dedicated to Sri-Lanka reflect this paradox.
They are full of bright colours. I used my own technique to create a
multi- layer effect. I chose it in order to better show the ancient
culture and rich traditions of this country.
My latest paintings about Sri-Lanka take the viewer into the
abstract world of colour and emotions. These paintings leave much space
for the viewers imagination.
This unhurried observation is the best way to create art together.
I invite you to take a step and join me on this beautiful journey.
