Second Generation Contemporary Artist
Kumarasinghe's paintings are inspired by contemporary and modern art. The
artist merges his own perspectives with a balance of creativity and imagination
to soothe the exhausted minds of the viewers. He presents the world through his
craftsmanship on the canvas by developing a close kinship with nature and
society, and visualizes it expressively.
His deep concern for society resurrects from the artist's free style to create graphically striking images, allowing the physicality of society to take form and to mold good citizens into society through the positive attributes of his paintings.
Malinga works with acrylics and oil paints and has employed a bright and bold color palette to capture the essence of his world. His great obsession with colors does not limit him to a set palette of colors, but allows him to experiment with a range of colors to characterize and elaborate his paintings with modern concepts.
His work transforms standard notions of modern and contemporary art into a uniquely expressive form, while his paintings rejuvenates the eyes of the viewer with fresh color and spontaneity.
Malinga's paintings merge reality with a fresh color scheme. His eye for detail makes his artwork, complex, but also simple as his subject matter are everyday objects or incidents we come across. The spontaneity of his brush-strokes, mark-making and palette knife techniques adds dimension and texture to his artwork, making them expressive and emotional.
His inner impulses are splashed across his work while he creates a truly memorable and everlasting impression through his art. He includes the knowledge passed down to him by his father who is also an artist and the knowledge he gained from learning art in school.
The simplicity of Malinga's compositions produces a refreshing and a meditational response in the viewer with its large areas of color and gestural strokes of paint that sums the harmony between him and the world around him. His great eye for modernizing his subjects makes his subject stand out despite its mundanity and make his work unique.
Malinga is an artist who intertwines unnerving juxtapositions with everyday creatures and objects and reveals it on canvas as an expression of his eye for detail and modernization. He molds his subjects to express his love for nature, vibrant colors and texture. His paintings are truly modern and the epitome of contemporary art!
