A graduate from the Department of Integrated Design of the University of Moratuwa, Thusan Nilendra’s metal sculptures integrates his interest in Design with Fashion. The artist collects everyday metal objects, such as discarded shovel blades, dented wheel rims, old buckets and rusty screws to name a few, and combines them to create eclectic sculptural masks. His approach is inspired by different ethnic styles. He dexterously plays with the different tones of rusted metal to evolve an earthy color palette, where each of the faces embodies a different personality.
