Saskia Pintelon

Belgium-born Saskia Pintelon (b. 1945), 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. 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.

A 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.
