Dinusha Uthpala Upasena was born in 1979 in Colombo. Dinusha is an artist who openly acknowledges his affiliation and fascination with philosophy. He has always been a person who is very keen in delving deep into the mysteries of life. Not satisfied with confining himself to practicing art as learnt in various art schools he finds it necessary to go deeper into issues like what motivates us as artists and the very nature of existence. Dinusha's current works are a dive into the area of Metaphysics, as they evoke questions about life and existence.
Since graduating from The University of Kelaniya, Pathmal's body of works feature figurative sculptures constructed of straight bars and metal. Although the artist noted that there is no deeper meaning to be found in his works, the viewer will clearly notice a certain dignity and majesty in each position. Heavy metal rods are welded together resembling the human muscular system, present inner strength, wherein the spaces between the bars create a mirage where the actual weight of the work is nullified with the light flowing through.
