Anup Vega

Anup Vega’s work playfully inherits a celebration of light, an essential dynamic of elements and energy through which is born ‘the 10,000 things’.

Born, 1967 in Kurunegala, a central mountainous province of Sri Lanka, Vega was drawn towards painting at an early childhood age by a transcendental experience, a spell of light, shapes and textures in which to play and direct.

Vega’s work later transformed its direction towards inquiries upon Self, harmony, the natural world and the nature of illusion.

‘Joy is freedom, exploring, discovering the freedom, of course it is not easyto inherit - Joy is for no reason.’ – Anup Vega, 2017
