Hailing from Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka, JC Rathnayake graduated from the University of Visual and Performing Arts in 2008. Although Rathnayake graduated in printmaking, he has developed a special technique in painting that has become his identity and signature. His most recent solo show was held at Paradise Road Galleries titled Isomorphic, exploring the dangers humans are to face by the material and technological advancement of mankind.
Pakkiyarajah Pushpakanthan holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Jaffna in Sri Lanka. Pushpakanthan has exhibited in group exhibitions organized by the university's faculty of Arts, as well as exhibited at Saskia Fernando Gallery in Colombo. Most recently he has exhibited at the 'Shadow Scenes' exhibition curated by Natasha Ginwala and Menika van der Poorten as part of Colomboscope 2015. The mood of Pushpakanthan's work is intentionally unsettling as he draws inspiration much of his experiences in the conflict and trauma of the war in the North.
