Anoli Perera, an artist, writer and cultural manager, has been part of the wave of artists in the 1990s in Sri Lanka who have professed a new ideological position in the art production in relation to the contemporary art knowledge and social context in Sri Lanka. Her studies of Political Science, Economics and Sociology at the University of Colombo were followed by a postgraduate diploma in International Affairs from the Bandaranaike Center for International Studies. From 1988 to 1992 she lived in the USA, where she started her career as a visual artist. Largely self-taught she pursued her training in stone carving at Artworks: The Visual Art School of Princeton for Continuing Education, New Jersey, USA.
