"NORTHERN DREAMS" an exhibition of paintings by Yohan Medhanka
21.06.2013 - 04.07.2013
Preview 20.06.13, 6pm-8pm
Saskia Fernando Gallery


Q: Why did you focus on people in the north in this exhibition?

A: I think as an artist it is our duty. I am a socialist and I am an artist. I could work in the advertising industry but I choose to be an artist to avoid working on the promotion of a product or idea. We have a duty in our freedom of expression to speak for those unspoken for. I think when it comes to art, mainly in Sri Lanka, the politically-inclined artists use art to promote their own agenda. I don’t view art as a tool to promote one’s personal agenda.
