Meet Aasiri Wickremage
Aasiri’s approach to painting has been influenced by her Asian heritage from Sri Lanka and other Asian countries she has lived in. She was an award winner at the London Biennale 2019.
Her artwork reflects the various styles of art and architecture found in each Asian country, which at times connects and at others divides them.
She enjoys combining recognisable and abstract elements in her work. The familiar and the strange. She is intrigued by the interplay between architectural symbols and the various meanings they hold. These storylines are used to iterate with the audience.
Her artworks are a way to share familiar and unfair feelings, decoded through a collage of paint layers, motifs, found objects and text in her native language.
