Colombo’s galleries aren’t just a platform for art in the traditional sense – you’ll find musical theatre productions, private dinners, fashion concept stores and all manner of other expressions of creativity. The National Art Gallery is the most well-known space and is home to a number of permanent exhibitions, whereas Paradise Road Galleries has a much more contemporary feel as well as housing collections from international artists. To see local artists live in action, take a walk on the nearby Boardwalk, or for more refined pieces check out the Saskia Fernando Art Gallery. Whichever you choose to visit, you’ll enter a world of colour and learn more about Sri Lanka’s creative culture.
