Savesan Nallaiah holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Jaffna in Sri Lanka. Nalliah has exhibited in group exhibitions organized by the university’s faculty of Arts, as well as exhibited at Saskia Fernando Gallery in Colombo. His luridly painted, almost child-like, canvases are in stark contrast to the graphic and sexual nature of the subject he explores.
