Pulasthi Handunge

As an architecture graduate from the City School of Architecture Colombo, Pulasthi Handungeā€™s passion lies in the intersection between art and architecture. With a fascination for spatial character and design, he delves into the historical narratives of the spaces he explores, enriching his understanding of the symbiotic relationship between the built environment and the natural world. He strives to infuse every piece of his work with a distinct Sri Lankan touch, thereby creating a reflection of both himself and the rich cultural tapestry that the country embodies. Debuting in 2010 with his first solo exhibition, Handunge has since participated in numerous group shows, including Kala Pola in 2019. His work was featured on the cover of ARTRA Magazineā€™s Emerging Artists | Best of 2020, Edition 57 (2020). As he ventures into the fields of art and architecture, Handunge works stand as a testament to his unwavering commitment to capturing the essence of nature and culture, all while celebrating his Sri Lankan heritage.
