The work found here is abstract, figurative and cubist. These are the main features of most of the art of artist and sculptrist Raja Segar—founder of the gallery, while his ways of experimenting with the refractive effect of light in his paintings can also be seen. Located in a small space, the gallery consists of around 30 paintings by Segar, as well as a selection of paintings by other artists.
Genres used for paintings in this gallery range from water colours to oils, pencil, pen and ink and mixed media and it is hard to miss the bold and fiery colours, the varied brush strokes, the lines and squares of these works, which depict the everyday lifestyles and habits of Sri Lankans. Modernity is given emphasis at this gallery.
In addition to the paintings, a variety of postcards, mainly based on Sri Lankan themes are also available.
