Being an ardent admirer of art myself, I enjoyed the amazing art work in pencil sketch, painting on wood and metal sculpture by Sri Lankan artist Lalith. The exhibition was held as a part of the cultural program of music and dance, organized by the Embassy of Sri Lanka at Gulf University of Science anfd Technology.

To sculpt in metal isn't easy. The intricate work involved in Lalith's sculpture was exquisite and unique.The pencil sketches were beautiful that gave a photographic effect. Burnt art work on wood and painting on wood was another skilled work on display by the artist.

Besides, the art work, were also traditional handcrafted dolls, masks, silk scarfs and shawls, photographs of Sri Lanka. At the end of the Sri Lankan art, music and dance event, we were served aromatic relaxing Ceylon tea, perfect for the weather.

Here are photos of the exhibits.
