The technique and attention to detail with which Gayan Prageeth paints and finishes his canvases place him in an increasingly growing movement of exceptional young contemporaries. Prageeth’s series of work consists of paintings on canvas depicting surreal landscapes, inspired by his own introspection and his religious surroundings. In 2009 Prageeth graduated from the University of Visual and Performing Arts and was selected to participate in various group shows. It was his work shown at the annual Kala Pola art market, that brought him to his first solo show at Paradise Road Galleries in 2010. Prageeth continues to teach art locally and is preparing for his next solo exhibition.
