Prameesha Abeysekera

Prameesha Abeysekera is a contemporary artist based in Calgary, Canada. Drawn to working with ink and other waterbased media she is a tactile finger painter who explores splatter and experimental techniques in capturing movement in her equine subjects.

 

Prameesha has a Bachelors of Arts, Graphic Design: New Media, from University for the Creative Arts  (Epsom, UK) (2004). During this time she also explored expression through different types of traditional and nontraditional media which informed the development of her craft. 

Inspired by movement and energy she was drawn to expressing the freedom of motion of her subjects. Her paintings often explode with motion, in an intricate exploration of the dance of light and shadow, breathing to life the story of horses that have touched her.
