About the artist

Thamara Perera is a Sri Lankan Canadian illustrator, artist and designer based in Toronto, Canada.

Exploring themes of human identity, duality, and transformation, her work often plays with introspective figures animating surreal landscapes. She graduated from OCAD University in 2021 with a Bachelor of Design in Illustration and was a recipient of the 401 Richmond Illustration Studio Award for the 2021-2022 year. Skilled in traditional and digital mediums, her practice focuses on hybrid and experimental approaches, fusing analogue painting and collage techniques with digital painting and manipulation. She finds inspiration for her creative practice in nature, mythology, and history.

When she isn't drawing, Thamara enjoys listening to podcasts, jamming to Black Sabbath’s greatest hits, collecting found objects, and cuddling with her cat, Nyra.
