Lives and Works: Galle Fort
French and Sri Lankan descent. Asia is based in Galle where she paints and lives.
Self-taught by a very young age, absorbing the tropical Sri Lankan scenery and energy all around her. Asia was formed in the relaxed pace of island life and was dedicated completely to art.
You can describe her artwork as a tropical fantasy. She likes to get lost in the process of lines and patterns, colours, and meticulous detail. Her influences as an artist are first and foremost everything she sees, feels and experiences. To her, painting is a way to express colour in all its beauty. Her main medium is acrylic on canvas.
Asia has incorporated collages using bright swathes of sari material into her work. She is inspired by Sri Lanka and India, the tones and the tropical essence of these two countries are the foundation for all she creates.
