`Figures’ on exhibition

Paradise Road Galleries is pleased to present Figures, an exhibition of new works by Sameera Kalupahana, will be on view until March 6 at Paradise Road Galleries, located within the premises of Paradise Road The Gallery Café.

Sameera Kalupahana was born in 1970 in Galle, Sri Lanka. A skilled water colourist, Kalupahana has been accredited as the only Sri Lankan artist since Justin Pieris Deriniyagala to be as skilled a draftsman. While his practice focuses on the study of the nude female form, rural scenes and landscapes; in this exhibition the artist presents a series of small oil paintings alongside works on paper. The artist's sensitivity to both medium and composition combine with a practice clearly inspired by his strongly rooted environment in the South of the island. Kalupahana's works have been exhibited in both Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom. His works belong to both local and international collections. His pieces can be viewed in the Paradise Road permanent collection.
