week #34 – @lohang / Lohan


Who are you and where do you come from?
My name is Lohan and I’m from Kegalle, Sri Lanka. I am a visual artist, writer and translator.

Share your twitter account with us and tell us what you are twittering about:
My tweet account is @lohang and I tweet about all sorts of things that spark interest in me: arts, literature, culture, politics, free and open source software, free culture etc. And I use twitter to interact with like-minded people.

Tell us about your creative side:
I don’t know what is the best way to put this into words as I am closely involved in many forms of art including theatre. But I am basically a painter. I’ve been painting since my childhood. However, I experiment with performance art, photo-based art and photography as well. Some of my paintings can be viewed on my website at http://lohangunaweera.tk . And I blog about my current work at http://lohang.livejournal.com . I enjoy creating photo-based art too ( photoblog-lohangunaweera.blogspot.com ) Some more can be viewed on my flickr profile at http://flickr.com/lohan

These questions are really awkward and I have never enjoyed talking about my self and my art! So I’ll just let the images do the talking.

What inspires you?
People, theatre and other arts, politics, buildings, nature and yellows outside my window. ( http://lohang.livejournal.com/54118.html )

Time travel: Where would you go to?
Never thought about it before. I think I would like to go to 1400s to meet Sri Lankan poet and intellectual Thotagamuwe Sri Rahula Thera. I always find his work inspiring and intriguing.

Name your favorite present book:
My current favorite is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami.

Which tweeter would you recommend for @createandrotate and why?
@Laurie_Skelton She is a very talented illustrator. Last week I saw her doing a really cool and fun collaborative thing on twitter.
