Modern art with a Sri Lankan twistBack
Art is a universal language that plays a pivotal role in shaping a country’s culture and society. Sri Lanka too has been influenced by many artists over the centuries. From those who adorned the walls of palaces during the Sinhala kingdoms to modern artists whose work portrays Sri Lanka’s evolution as an independent country – all of them have played an intrinsic part of telling Sri Lanka’s story.
