Sanjaya Senevirathna hails from Kandy, Sri Lanka. He studied painting at the University of Visual Art and Performing Arts in Colombo, Sri Lanka. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Sri Lanka and overseas.
As a person born and brought up in Buddhist culture, he believes that the concepts of good and bad fostered in the Dhamma controls his subconscious mind which in turn guides him to hold onto what he conceptualizes as good or spiritual.
Senevirathna has recently begun to use materials he associates with consumerism in his work such as newspaper and advertising banners. It is his relationship with his subconscious mind that results in such works of art.
