Two brothers on creative journey once again

Two gifted young artists, brothers Shanilka and Ashinka Wimalasena have the rare ability to capture nature through their skill with the paintbrush and their artistic eye.

They held their first exhibition ‘Siblings’ at the National Art Gallery when they were aged just ten and nine years of age.

Now five years later, aged 15 and 14 respectively, they will not only exhibit their paintings but are launching a book of their wildlife paintings.

Titled ‘Wings’, the book comprises their paintings of the birds of Sri Lanka. ‘Wings’ will be launched on May 20 at 10 a.m. at the National Art Gallery along with an exhibition of their work which will continue from May 21 to 23 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The two young Peterites are ardent nature lovers and hope that through their efforts they will encourage other young people to not only be inspired by the wonders of nature as they have indeed been but to protect this great heritage too.
