Sumali is a self-taught artist from 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 on in life. Today, Sumali is an active artist, who develops her own style and artistic identity. She enjoys experimenting with vibrant colour palettes and different media. Her work ranges from classic oil paints to alcoholic inks and epoxy resins. The dominant style of her paintings is abstract and differs from traditional techniques to a blend of modern mixed media techniques.
Sumali’s inspiration is drawn from her travel, surroundings, the people she interacts with and things that capture her eye. Her paintings represent freedom, joy and positivity.
