A Peek Into Pala Pothupitiye’s Sri Sri Lanka
- Artistic Motivations “I don’t know, I am not sure. I just paint and make art everyday. I like making art so much.”
- Inspirations “My father, Jagath Weerasinghe and K. G. Subramanyan. Also the traditional arts and crafts of Sri Lanka.”
- On the wall at home “Mullegama Art Center has gifted most of them. I have works given to me by Jagath Weerasinghe, Anoli Perera, Aruna Vidana Arachchi, Priyanthi Anusha, and other artists from Theertha. I admire many works by other master artists from around the world…”
- Concerns that find a place in your art “Human conflicts – ethnic, cast-based, colonial, religious…”
Sri Sri Lanka is on display at Tarq, Mumbai (F35/36, Dhanraj Mahal, Apollo Bunder, Colaba) until February 20, 2016.
