T V S MENAKA sets foot to explore modern Sri Lankan art. His main objective is to experiment with different fresh art styles. His passion for art leads him to explore various materials such as canvas, wood, metal and plaster and ultimately to produce a unique piece of art.
Menaka prefers to work freely, using colours and lines without any limitations or restrictions. He enjoys working with a fast rhythm, be it drawing, painting or constructing a piece of his own. “That is my style”, he says. “I really enjoy using colourful and strong lines in my paintings; my favourite subject is the human body, expressing activities such as sadness, happiness, excitement, sexuality and love.”
Momentarily, Menaka is set to experiment with a combination of materials to create a sculpture on the canvas, a new art form, which Menaka describes as “non art”. Through this experiment, he has been able to improve his artistic views. He expresses his skills through many mediums and art styles such as abstract, expression, modernism and traditional.
T V S Menaka’s work will be exhibited at Lords Art Gallery in Negombo.
