the second solo exhibition by Shanaka Kulathunga will be held from March 12 to 14 at the Lionel Wendt Art Gallery in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Soul Windows will unfold Shanaka's latest collection of soulful portraits of 'the known and the unknown'."
"Shanaka Kulthunga is a skillful artist, who has studied fine arts both formally and informally in and out of institutions. He is specialized on portrait painting and gained inspiration from the techniques of the masters of post-classical era mostly. The human body has been his subject as well as his muse behind his creativity since adolescence which later led him to find his artistic soul and his professional career in life as a physician.
The use of colors in Shanaka's paintings is unique and interesting. Each portrait is allowed to keep its own visual space within his palette, and his artistic ability to work with vibrant colors such as the blues, reds and greens together but separately on the surface is something captivating."
