Jagath the owner of Pethikada art gallery is a cleaver artist with lots of talent. Great paintings done on canvas and wood. He has some beautiful collection of sigiriya rock paintings looks the same. The rates are very reasonable.

Gorgeous select pieces of hand painted Sri Lankan art. The owner carefully explained the various style and periods of art movements in Sri Lanka. Upon consideration, I bought a beautiful piece of Kandy style painting.
