Ramesh mario nithiyendran

b. 1988, Sri Lanka

Employing humour and complex craftsmanship, the ceramic sculptures of Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran boldly address issues of ethnicity, religion, gender and sexuality. Resembling obscure objects of divinity and phallus-worship, they suggest rarefied forms borne out of a decentered and heterogeneous cultural and aesthetic landscape.

In March 2016, Nithiyendran presented his largest project to date at Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. In August 2015 he  was the recipient of the prestigious Sidney Myer Fund Award for Ceramic Art. He was also awarded the NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (emerging) in 2014 at Artspace, Sydney. Born 1988 in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Nithiyendran migrated to Sydney with his family in 1989. He studied painting at the College of Fine arts, University of New South Wales, and completed a Master of Fine Arts (research) in 2013. His work is held in the collections of Artbank, Shepparton Art Museum, University of New South Wales Collection as well as private collections in Australia and Sri Lanka.
