Chandraguptha Thenuwara is one of the senior figures in contemporary Sri Lankan art. His work has been exhibited internationally, from his native Sri Lanka to Australia, Asia, and Europe, with notable permanent installations in Colombo and Japan. Thenuwara is the director of the Vibhavi Academy of Fine Arts in Colombo, a not-for-profit art school which he founded in 1993 as an independent alternative to state-run art institutions, with the aim of teaching young and marginalized artists the basic tenets of fine art practice under the instruction of practicing artists. He has also participated in several international artist's camps and workshops in Southeast Asia, and was artist in residence at John Moore's University in 2002. As an artist, he is renowned primarily for his concept of Barrelism that crosses into painting, drawings, prints, sculptures, maps, writing 2 and installations.
