Dillai Joseph Rodrigo’s first solo exhibition “People, Puddles and Paradise” invites Colombo’s art connoisseurs to a deeper look at the everyday mundane. Dillai’s love for art goes back to her childhood. Growing up in the Joseph household induced an appreciation for music and the arts. “The genes come from my grandfather,” she recalls, remembering his work which was strewn around the house.

Although she spent her teen years involved with music and art, Dillai would be 19 when she started formal training in the subject under the tutelage of Nadine David. “It’s never too late to start,” she told herself. Though she had been a part of two exhibitions in her twenties, “I decided not to procrastinate any further” and thus began work for her first solo exhibition earlier this year. “People, Puddles and Paradise” an exhibition, will be held on October 23, 24, 25 at the Lionel Wendt from 8.30 a.m. to 8.30p.m. Dillai-pic-1
