Laki Senanayake (1937 - ) has been painting and drawing since the age of three. Spent the years from 1946 to 1956 in various educational institutions gathering little moss. Found Art as enforced in school tiresome and devoted his time to bounding about on a diving board. Sacked from his first job as an architectural draughtsman within a year, he was fortunate to be re-employed as an assistant to Geoffrey Bawa, Architect. He created many sculptures and murals for Bawa’s buildings. His work includes painting, drawing, architecture, landscape gardening, silk screen printing, batik, and digital art.
