Poornima is currently the Head of Arts at the British School in Colombo. She is a co-founder and a director of the Collective of Contemporary Artists (CoCA); together with her husband Chinthaka. Her reputation precedes her with many awards locally and internationally for her paintings, digital art and conceptual photography. She prefers to not be limited by any one genre and hence, her art practice also encompasses drawing, painting, sculpting, digital art installations, mix media, video and sound installations. She has emerged in the international arena in the last few years as an artist exploring possibilities of artistic expressions, using alternative spaces both inside and outside of galleries.
Note that Poornima will be doing the talk jointly together with Chinthaka
