My name is Dharshani Haththotuwa. I am an abstract painter from Toronto, Canada. I prefer abstracts because as the viewer you can interpret the painting as you like. I primarily use acrylic on canvas. I am inspired by color, texture, patterns, and shapes. I allow inspiration to guide me and make moves based on instinct. For me, the canvas is like a mirror reflecting how I feel inside at that moment, by my surroundings and my memories. Therefore, my work is constantly evolving.
I have a bachelor’s degree in science and no formal higher education in art. Life experience has been my greatest teacher when it comes to creativity and I do learn and grow by witnessing the creativity of others. My goal is to sell my original paintings to those who share in my vision and can feel the emotions in each of my creations.
