Sameera Kalupahana was born in 1970 in Galle, Sri Lanka. A skilled water colourist, Kalupahana has been accredited as the only Sri Lankan artist since Justin Pieris Deriniyagala to be as skilled a draftsman. While his practice focuses on the study of the nude female form, rural scenes and landscapes; in this exhibition the artist presents a series of small oil paintings alongside works on paper. The artist’s sensitivity to both medium and composition combine with a practice clearly inspired by his strongly rooted environment in the South of the island. Kalupahana’s works have been exhibited in both Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom.
