Private collection, Mumbai
Senaka Senanayake is one of Sri Lanka’s most famous living artists with over a hundred shows to his credit across the world. He covered a broad spectrum of subjects and experimented with Western modernism early on his career. However, he is best known for his vibrant canvases depicting lush landscapes and most recently the endangered flora and fauna of his native country. Like in the picture, he produces brightly hued images reflecting deep spirituality and evoking unbridled happiness. He uses cheerful palettes to create a magical realm that offers a vision of natural beauty, celebrating simplicity and promoting life in harmony with nature.
