An avid art enthusiast and artist practicing realistic and impressionist styles, Sunil paints portraits and landscapes whilst capturing still life. He explores many mediums such as oils, acrylics, water colour, gouache and pastels when creating works of art. His paintings have a touch of wistful poignancy which he communicates through the expressions of his subjects set against backgrounds beautifully crafted with skilled brush strokes.
This artist is a Life Member and past Council Member of Ceylon Society of Arts ( 1993 ).
Sunil’s interest in art was ignited when he studied Fine Art at the Melbourne School of Art ( 1976–1977) and thereafter at the Mudliyar A C G S Amarasekera School of Art (1978-1983). He kept developing his skills while he studied under the renowned master portrait artist Saradias Lankathilake (1987–1989) and master landscape artist Donald Ramanayake (1990-1992). Then he went on to study under the senior artists Roydon Gibbs (2018-2019) and Brindley Jayatunga (2019-2020).
Sunil read for his Bachelor of Science at the University of Colombo and is currently a Director at Pharmacare.
