You will start off at Colombo's top 2-3 art galleries which will showcase a range of local artists' contemporary work, to get a guided sense of modern art in Sri Lanka. Next we go to see some historical art work such as the sculpting at Independence Square and the temple work in Bellanwila or Beira Lake, which has religion and custom intertwined with art and architecture. Next we take a look at street art in Viharamahadevi Park, Slave Island or the Diyata Uyana park, which is more art by the public for the public. These 3 viewings will give you a sense of culture, history and art in Sri Lanka via different perspectives, especially with my knowledge in local art, architecture, travel and networks. If time and schedule permits, we can also include a sit-down at Barefoot Cafe for drinks with a dress designer, mural artist, tattoo artist or musician so you get to understand local art and culture first hand from a real conversation. We could also include a trip to a musical gig to experience local music first hand if there happens to be one during your stay. Additionally you can also arrange for photography during your tour, and a meditation session on Buddhist mindfulness.

Dove ti troverai
The historic sites include beautiful Buddhist temple spaces and carvings in stone both here and at Independence Square, sacred spaces that speak of eons of Sri Lankan design, religion and politics. The street art work will take you through alleys and parks occupied by the public, a raw glimpse into working class lives and how they mix with art. Your sit-in with an artist will be in a calming and renowned Cafe/gallery/store under frangipani trees.
