Pradeep Chandrasiri

Pradeep Chandrasiri is a well-known Sri Lankan artist who has exhibited locally and internationally. He is a visiting lecturer on theatre set design and production design at various universities and theatre schools in Colombo. He has designed award-winning theatre sets for the National Theatre Festival of Sri Lanka. He also received the Commonwealth Art and Craft Award for his work in the visual arts in 2003, which allowed him to participate in a visiting artist programme at the University of Wollongong, Australia. He has participated in many local and international artist programmes since 1998, including the second Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial, at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan in 2002.

Chandrasiri is currently based in Colombo, and belongs to the group of artists first identified with "90s Trend," a Sri Lankan art movement that professed a new ideological position in art production influenced by contemporary art practice and social context. He came to prominence within this discourse during the 1990s. His works are profoundly influenced by autobiographical memories of his experiences in Sri Lanka.

In addition, Chandrasiri is a founding member and executive committee member of the Theertha Artists Collective.
