Anuradha Punchihewa

Contemporary Artist


Anuradha Punchihewa

Anuradha Punchihewa is a talented contemporary artist who uses colors and shapes to bring out the depth of his story and narrate in a simplified manner to his audience.

He completed his Bachelor of Visual Arts (Special) with first class at the University of Visual Arts, Colombo, Sri Lanka in 2013. He also possesses a Diploma in Photography in Drama & amp; Theater, and Image Arts from the Department of Fine Arts, University of Kelaniya in 2015 and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education from University of Colombo in 2017. He is currently employed as an Art Teacher.

Anuradha says that "The man has passed several transition periods from primitive stages to the present. The society is more complicated compared to the past. As an artist, I looks at the society as isolated, extraordinary and obscure or conspicuous. Artists have exploited this condition. As a young artist, I try to highlight this magical or enchanting atmosphere through my paintings. I also try not to harm the romantics structures or poetic values as expected by the audience."
