Artist Chandana

 

Gallery

I am very proud of the fact that I am an artist and an art teacher. It helps me observe what is in the surroundings and create something special. My mission is to give others the same pleasure that I enjoy through all this artwork.

As a teacher, I get to boost the knowledge of my students by teaching them about the different developmental stages of art, about famous artists, their masterpieces and their techniques, about instillation, the technique of art and sculpture, and about new creation, ideologies and new trends in the art world. I do this with pleasure and it has been a rewarding experience for me.

I am also interested in improving my knowledge on this subject, learn new art techniques and movements. In addition, I would like to experiment with painting techniques used overseas and learn more about their art history.

It is important to mention that the Sri Lankan traditional artwork is equivalent to any other contemporary art work in the world. But sadly these temple painting are fading due to various reasons. I personally think that it is our responsibility to duplicate these treasures & preserve for our future generations. The above paintings are a few of such Buddhist & Hindu temple paintings (oil on canvas) in the Kandyan era which I have duplicated.


Painting Sri Lanka/ Water Color Painting

Water colour paintings are my other favourite mode of painting. I love the techniques like wet on wet and the quality of transparency since it generates quality work. In addition, the ‘nature loving’ quality of water colour paintings and the flexibility in water colours makes this mode more interesting.


Painting Sri Lanka / Modern Art Styles

Through modern art and stylize illustrations, one should be able to break all the traditional barriers and freely create a concept or idea through his/ her creation. In fact, this is my most favourite approach.

Human figures, nature drawing and nudes are essential for any kind of art since these are basics for beginner level artists and any art students.

Using the different, but true medium, creating a sculpture in a correct space makes the experience memorable. I use the practice and the proficiency I gather from sculpting to enhance my other art works.
