As we all know, Sri Lanka is a diverse country that is home to many religions, ethnicities and languages. It is the land of the Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Tamils, Moors, Indian Tamils, Burghers, Malays, Kaffirs and the aboriginal Vedda. Sri Lanka has a rich Buddhist heritage, and the first known Buddhist writings were composed on the island. The capital of Sri Lanka, ‘Sri Jayawardenapura-Kotte’, is a suburb of the largest city, Colombo. An important producer of tea, coffee, gemstones, coconuts, rubber, and the native cinnamon, Sri Lanka is known as “the Pearl of the Indian Ocean” because of its natural beauty. Sri Lanka has also been called “the teardrop of India” because of its shape and location, and “the nation of smiling people”. The island contains tropical forests and diverse landscapes with high biodiversity. It is a pleasure to get to know creative artists from Sri Lanka, and Touchtalent.com looks forward to promote more artists with unique talents, from Sri Lanka.
This post highlights two of the bright creative artists from Sri Lanka, who mesmerize you with their artworks.
Chamara Amarasekara: He specializes in “dot art”. His creative artworks in the genre give us a unique perspective to look at art. They look similar to pencil sketches, but they are not. And the beauty of the difference makes all the sense. Dot art is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure colour or ink or pencil are applied in patterns to form an image. The technique relies on the ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to blend the color spots into a fuller range of tones. The majority of Dot Art is done in oil paints. Anything may be used in its place, but oils are preferred for their thickness and tendency not to run or bleed. Dot Art colours often seem brighter than typical mixed subtractive colours. This may be partly because subtractive mixing of the pigments is avoided, and partly because some of the white canvas may be showing between the applied dots. It is very rare to find artists pursuing Dot Art, and Touchtalent.com is grateful to have onboard Chamara Amarasekara from Sri Lanka, who shares his artworks, enlightens and mesmerizes us all alike. tweet
Lickshon Rajapakse: He is a photographer with an eye for intricate details. He can see what you and I may not see. And he captures that all in his camera. He finds magic in natural beauty. He can see human faces in natural flora and fauna. And that is what makes him so special an artist. He will mesmerize you with his artworks! tweet
