Experienced Classical Figurative Artist
Wasantha Namaskara was born
on August 15, 1972, in Sri Lanka. The desire to discover what painting means
has been in him since childhood. Therefore, he was constantly paying attention
to the development of his drawing ability, and he decided to find an end to it.
It had been a very difficult task, but Wasantha felt that it was a beautiful
experience. He experienced the totality of art by walking across India.
Art is a spiritual language,
and it became clear to him that analyzing art required a psychological
approach. The desire to explore the human figure has increased his
understanding of art. Wasantha's honors degree in Sociology and Anthropology
from the University of Sri Jayawardenepura has given him many opportunities to
identify the cultural and social patterns associated with the human figures. At
the Institute of Fine Arts VIBAVI, he discovered classical painting techniques
related to drawing the human figure.
He practices it constantly thereafter and he managed to discover a lot of information about human behavior by holding painting exhibitions in many parts of Sri Lanka. It had been a wonderful experience which has taken him a long time to realize that there are lots of people who shouldn't be showing art. He also saw how people's mental illnesses were aggravated by seeing paintings and how people's mental illnesses were cured through paintings. The victory he has received from it was to direct the artistic language without being an extremist. Wasantha is constantly creating something on blank spaces (canvas or paper) which is his life, and he wishes to sell these creations to those who like them.
