Reginald S. Aloysius is a British Sri Lankan artist based in London.
Aloysius's work explores themes of globalization, emigration, and destruction of tradition — intentionally or otherwise — through development and modernisation.
His detailed pencil drawings of Indian Hindu temples coupled with a sensuous and delicate use of enamel paint creates an alluring relationship between drawing and painting. Each work is embellished with intricate carvings of modernist architectural shapes and aircraft flight plans; a scarring that mirrors the irreparable change that an evolving society can have on ancient tradition.
