Northern Dream by Yohan Manhanka — Colombo, Sri Lanka — 20 JUN - 04 JUL, 2013
Saskia Fernando Gallery, 61 Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 7, Sri Lanka
Yohan Medhanka is a young Sri Lankan artist. He is a self-taught artist who has a skill and intensity that is uncommon in artists with no formal education in fine art. His portraits tell a story, while his technique merges oil painting with contemporary colours and concepts. Inspired by the North in post-war Sri Lanka, he had created a series of portraits for his solo exhibition. His work shows us the power of young Sri Lankan contemporaries.
