Kandy, Central Province

An experience where art and philosophy intertwine effortlessly. This one’s unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else. The hills of Kandy after sundown add to its surreal nature.

 

The elevated topography that characterizes Kandy’s landscape has nurtured many an artist and dancer in times past. From religious frescoes and the up-country dancing tradition that are centuries old, Sri Lanka’s hill capital has been the setting for some of the island’s best art. A refreshing glass of juice starts this one off. The veranda of your hosts’ home offers a series of breathtaking views. Inspiration flows smoothly here. The hosts are a father-daughter duo that are famed for their poignant artwork. To see their home and the work spread across its extent, is a privilege afforded to few. Home and studio blend seamlessly as you’ll see during this private experience. There is no separation between art and life for them. The sun recedes as we sit on the veranda sipping freshly brewed tea. Philosophy, music and art are discussed leisurely here as night time draws close.

 

The hosts’ home, their art and the philosophy behind them will stay with you for a long time.
