Kanesh Thabendran holds a Bachelor of Art and Design from the University of Jaffna in Sri Lanka. Thabendran has exhibited in group exhibitions organized by the university’s faculty of Arts, as well as exhibited at Saskia Fernando Gallery in Colombo. His work deals with his family’s struggle to safeguard their household items during and after the war as well as the loss that his family faced when so many of their items went missing. Cutting out of photographs helps the artist come to terms with his reality.
