All these collage paintings by the talented artist Chandana Ranaweera depict his great belief in religion. Buddhism is apparently the source of inspiration for his creative impulses.
The technique adopted in this collection is Collage with subdued colours. This method with his most unusual use of material, proves to viewers this renowned artist has succeeded in giving a new dimension to traditional themes. He has been called an artist of linear poetry. I think he has created his own new way of painting. This adventurous exploring has already touched the hearts of viewers with his unique way of painting. I hope these novel paintings will earn him accolades from art lovers from all over the world.
