REALISTIC ART 

MARIA ABEYESEKERE

of

MARIA ABEYESEKRE is  an award winning realist artist, a self taught (b.1970) whose unique style is done by classical realism. Her art is held in private collections across the world since she sold her 1st award winning painting for Best Young Artist in 1990 to Dr. Ian Goonetileke, who was a renowned scholar, art collector and art critic in Sri Lanka. 

She lives amongst the wilderness in the Central highlands of beautiful island, Sri lanka and says the serenity and the scenic beauty of where she is, makes the perfect environment for her to paint more.

"It is a hard and demanding discipline to succeed in realism into a painting. It needs devotion, patience and practice." - Maria Abeyesekere
