Ruwan Prasanna is a determined emerging talent who has come a long way since exhibiting in the 2004 Kala Pola. Prasanna completed one year of his fine arts degree at the University of Visual and Performing Arts only to divert to the advertising industry where he continues to work to-date. In 2010 Ruwan Prasanna held his first solo show at Paradise Road Galleries; the show was a sell-out. Birds inspire Prasanna's abstract compositions and they continue to be presented as an evolving series of work titled 'Bird Unknown'. The form and colour often resemble a flock or a cockfight, with calmness in the overall composition that provides the balance and creates harmony therein.
