Sumali Piyatissa is an artist based in Colombo, Sri Lanka. She’s an Accountant by profession and her love for art desired her to pursue it further. She has been painting for many years, developing her own style and artistic identity to create unique pieces of art. Sumali enjoys experimenting with bold color palettes and different mediums. From Oil painting to alcohol inks and epoxy resin. Her style of painting is abstract and differs from traditional techniques to a blend of modern mixed media techniques. 

 

Sumali’s inspiration is drawn from her travel, surroundings, color, the people she interacts with and things that capture her eye.

Her work has been exhibited at Art fairs locally and internationally and she has had two solo exhibitions to date. She is currently selling her artwork on international platforms and is working with renowned interior designers on diverse projects.
