What students says about artist Chandana

Chandana can bring out the unique style in all of us through our artwork. Priyanga, Department of Architecture, University of Moratuwa

He taught me how art can be a whole new experience in my young life. Ushani - 2005

He showed us that there are many different ways to draw with confidence. He also showed us how to experience the pleasure of drawing with confidence. Nadeeka – 2006

Among many things he taught us, the most interesting one was that, art is not about passing exams but a "way of life". He also taught us without any reservations, unlike some other teachers we had met.

He is not only an artist but someone who is very knowledgeable about the subject. He is experimental in nature and has made us to read further on the subject. The guidance and his practical approach will always stay in our mind. Wijani, Prabha, Virangya, Poornima - Old Girls of Mahamaya Girls' College, Kandy.
