Surein Leanage

Bio / Artist Statement

Hamilton based artist, Surein Leanage is a painter, photographer and designer.

Born in Sri Lanka, Leanage settled in Toronto after spending several years in German refugee camps.

Meeting, interacting and bonding with people from around the world, he came to understand that beneath social constructs such as status, creed, religion and culture, at the core there exists a shared essential humanness: A singular but complex language called emotion.

Using colour, contrast, composition and abstractness, Leanage captures the transitions we go through from one emotion to another.
