    About the artist

    Being an influential artist in the modern Sri Lankan society, Sudath Abeysekara has introduced many new trends to the arena of Sri Lankan art. He started drawing as a young boy before starting his Bachelors of Fine Arts at the University of Visual and Performing Art, Colombo in Sri Lanka and held his first solo exhibition in 1999 at the National Art Gallery, Colombo, followed by a number of talked about art exhibitions.

    During my undergraduate art history studies, my imagination was captivated by a masterpiece of sculpture that epitomized, for me, the ideal of youthful vigor. Michelangelo’s David. What

    I could not find in my own rich cultural heritage, I found in the universal heritage of humankind. I see in the biblical figure - who overcomes the brutish militarism of Goliath and the paranoid antagonism of Saul - an inspiring tenacity of will, an earthy spirituality and a full-blooded lust for life. And I see in Michelangelo’s David a powerful icon of youthful beauty, vitality and idealism.
