the East and the West meet and dialogue in the works of John Marks nishantha, an author originally from Sri Lanka, in balance between two antithetical cultures, yet so close, thanks to his disarming technical ability and admirable formal inventiveness. the paintings of John Marks nishantha thus enclose the oriental spirit, that interweaving between man and nature in search of perfect harmony, and western thought, a concreteness that becomes reflection, in the round, on the human condition. a diversified production, both as regards painting, which ranges between landscapes, portraits, traditional painting, abstract, and with regard to the bas-relief, where the author experiments with different materials and techniques, absolutely interesting.
