Lochini Johnston

Painter

I was born in Sri Lanka, a beautiful Island also known as Ceylon. Art has been a great passion, a hobby, and a way of relaxation for me since my childhood. My art comes to life in many different forms and it is very much of a discovery and exploratory process through travel and nature. I paint using oil on canvas, acrylic on stone and charcoal on a variety of different bases such as wood, paper and stone. Some of my paintings lean towards realism with landscapes and scenery while my most recent work depicts a touch of surrealism. I call my style “flowing in the wind” because of the long brush strokes with wavy soft edges.

After my travels visiting the prehistoric caves in France I was inspired by these ancient paintings inside the caves. Since a few years ago I have been painting a few inspirational cave paintings on stone and loved the process, the texture and bringing it to life with my art. I have continued to paint my own creations on slate stone. To me those early paintings represent the birth of human creativity. I find the depth and understanding the artist had and the media and mediums used fascinating in many ways. My vision is to have a garden center one day that will be filled with lovely stone paintings. I have sold many and have a few in my own front and back yard as they can be kept outdoors or indoors all year round. I named my art website travelersart.com because I love to travel to many different places all around the world enjoying the wonders, discovering and experiencing something new, something unique that gets me in the mood to paint.   Visit http://travelersart.com to see more on my journey as an Artist. I belong to many prominent art groups, sell art, work on commissions and participate in shows.
