Art, x they say, has the power to soothe, refresh and rejuvenate, and Kingsley Gunatillake’s unique brand of art does just that, and more, kingsley is an artist who has dared to experiment with medieval techniques, fussing them with admirable ease to modern themes. He has managed to incorperate the timeless, symmetrical beauty of ancient Sri Lanka’s temple friezes with its stylised themes, into his modern paintings of bold brushstrokes and vivid colout. In doing so, he has trodden an uncharted territory and imprinted his very special brand of art in the minds of all contemporary art lovers. Kingsley’s paintings resound with joie de vivre and have an instant uplifting effect on the viewer. His techniques and colout palette are infeed a joy to behold.
