Art of reverence

The adoration and respect Gunasiri Kolambage has for Lord Buddha has been the inspiration for him to place on canvas from January last year a series of portrayals of the Master in celebration of the Sambuddhatva Jayanthi.

These are the paintings that are on display at the Lionel Wendt currently on the theme 'Buddharaja'.
Kolambage, now 73, who calls himself “a student of art” has been painting since he was a child and many are the awards he has won for his work in the past four decades. Since his first solo exhibition in 1966, he has exhibited his work both in Sri Lanka and abroad.

"I try new experiments on a daily basis. Today I spend time studying," he says.
