Sumali Piyatissa

Sumali Piyatissa

Born: 1977

Hometown: Colombo

Based in: Colombo

Sumali Piyatissa is an artist based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.  In her daily life she works as a financial advisor but her love for art has always given her a keen desire to pursue it further. However, her journey as an artist began later in life.  Today, Sumali is a self-taught, active artist who develops her own style, composing her own artistic identity, and creating unique works of art. She enjoys experimenting with vibrant color palettes and different media. Her works ranges from classic oil paints to alcoholic inks and epoxy resins.  The dominant style of her painting is abstract and differs from traditional techniques by presenting a peculiar combination of modern mixed media techniques.

More About Sumali Piyatissa

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Travel plays a big part for my inspiration and also my surroundings, color, people I interact with and whatever that captures my eye. It maybe just gazing into the sky and its mood of color , the formation of clouds, an interior, different textures and many more. I try my best to represent freedom, joy and positivity through all my paintings.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

Color blending and playing with different color palettes would be my main style. Depending on my mood I would use very vibrant hues or subdued hues. I use a lot of gold leaf and the gold dust. It gives such a rich finish to the painting and somehow brightens it up. Each painting is different and I layer it with texture and paints. I use the palette knife to create and define the painting. Which is also one of my favorite tools to use along with the fan brush.
