Belgium-born Saskia Pintelon moved to Sri Lanka in 1982. Her paintings are very personal and yet encompass a wide range of universal concerns in strong, layered images. Inspired by local and universal issues, stories from the gut and the heart, politics and day-to-day concerns, her body of works interprets the collective human experience, environment and the cycle of life with intimate and personal preoccupations. Pintelon has shown her work in galleries in Asia and Europe
Sandatharaka Abeysinghe is currently an undergraduate student at the University of Visual and Performing Arts in Colombo. His watercolor paintings are rather subtle and of minimalistic style, where he combines realistic miniature-figuration with abstract landscape giving his works a splash of color. The artist focuses mainly on the day-to-day routine life of rural upcountry Sri Lanka. His sceneries are done on empty spaces, where he aims to fill the gap in his art with the people.
