Experience

Jayantha's stile is one of realism as opposed to Abstract Art. He is a perfectionist who strives for excellence. He attributes his talent to his habit actively looking at the environment everywhere he goes, and also to his Photographic memory which enables him to see something and store it in his mind, for recall many years later. He also has the ability to see a finished work, when we would see only a blank canvas. His forte is painting the Human figure. Even as a child he loved to paint figures and nudes, at a time when children did not have the access to see such images. Jayantha;s very first Solo Exhibition "Expressions" was in 2003. He had a successful "Expressions" series of Exhibitions annually and his ninth was held in December 2012. In November 2009 He gifted a portrait done in charcoal to HE President Mahinda Rajapakse.
