About The Artwork

Leaning against the tree of thick green foliage, Oh! woman, With your heavy bluish braided tresses, Oh! Ratnavalli, like the peacock resplendent, Descend from the green telambu tree. Wrapped in wreaths of cool, balmy sal flowers, Oh! woman, At whose incantations diseases vanish, Who wears the fearsome string of corals, Oh, Ratnavalli, respond to our call and descend. The name Ratna-tilaka Valli befits you; With rituals awe-inspiring I propitiate you; And those whose twentieth year has passed, You shall not go without the taste of flesh.

Jayantha's style is one of realism as opposed to abstract art. He is a perfectionist who strives for excellence. He attributes his talent to his habit of actively looking at the environment everywhere he goes, and also to his photographic memory which enables him to see something and store it in his mind, for recall many months or years later. He also has the ability to see a finished work, when we would see only a blank canvas. His forte is painting the human figure. Even as a child he loved to paint figures and nudes, at a time when children did not have the access to see such images.
