Belgium-born Saskia Pintelon has spent the last 36 years living in Sri Lanka, a defining influence and a continual inspiration for her work. Her paintings are very personal and yet encompass a wide range of universal concerns in strong, layered images. Senior Sri Lankan artist, Pintelon has shown her work in galleries in Asia and Europe. She participated in the 2009 Colombo Art Biennale in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Inspired by local and universal issues, stories from the gut and the heart, politics and day-to-day concerns, her body of works interprets the collective human experience, environment and the cycle of life with intimate and personal preoccupations.
