Savesan Nallaiah holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Jaffna in Sri Lanka. Nalliah has exhibited in group exhibitions organized by the university's faculty of Arts, as well as exhibited at Saskia Fernando Gallery in Colombo. His luridly painted, almost child-like, canvases are in stark contrast to the graphic and sexual nature of the subject he explores.
Prageeth Rathnayake is an emerging artist with a similar viewpoint and opinion as the majority of artists graduating from the University of Visual and Performing Arts at present.
What sets Prageeth Rathnayake apart is his ability to paint with an individual style. He is an artist strongly influenced by the 90s movement, and yet there is clear inspiration also from the new movement of artists, those that have graduated and continued to teach and study art using the local art scene as an influence. Their work is becoming increasingly sensitive to technique and concept. Their paintings are less obvious and more intellectually stimulating.
