Colombo city and its landmark buildings first became the subjects of
Sanjeewee Senevirathna's watercolour paintings, about a decade ago with
the"REFLECTIVE LANDMARKS" watercolour exhibition held in 2008.
'Since 2008 though it was sort of a silent era, I would like to
acquaint it as an "Explorative Silence". Because, during the period, my
effort was to explore my space and usage in watercolour medium. As a
result, I created my experimental work studying the modern work of
International watercolour trends and was able to represent quite a few
International watercolourexhibitions. I was privileged to be exhibited
with international watercolour artists', says Sanjeewee.
'I had the opportunity to participate at several selected visual art
exhibitions locally. My present work is subjected on 'The living space
of human in Urbanization'. It's about the man and his own creations as
buildings, vehicles, construction, various consumer goods and non-human
constructed things as The Sea, Land and Trees. It's all about these
movable and immovable units.
'Buildings are the units that fill the space between men. Sometimes
it builds human relationships, and sometimes breaks them down.
'But during all the time in the past, present and future, buildings
have stood the closest to the human being.
The environment which doesn't care about human reactions continues
with its climatic changes and environmental processes as usual,' says
"URBAN SPACE" is the combination of all these watercolour mediumistic
