Biography – Gudrun Weerasinghe

German artist Gudrun Weerasinghe graduated in visual art and design at the university of Essen (bachelor of arts and design). Various study tours through all continents followed by, which influenced and inspired the artist and her special way of painting. For a long time she lived in Liberia and in Sri Lanka. In the coming years Gudrun Weerasinghe developed the style and the term of “ARTHEALING”, which she also calls “Applied, Ethical Design of Conscious-ness” (subject of copyright).
The style ARTHEALING articulates the dialectical comprehension of her art: healing through art and healing of art, thus somehow reflecting her critical attitude towards certain tendencies of contemporary art. For Gudrun Weerasinghe is the essence of the art something as individable connected with the ethics of her being defined as an Animal Communicator. (You get more informations from her website: under the button "Press Releases", and the article written by Prof. Dr. G. Schmitt "Arthealing"). She chose visual art and literature as those mediums that express the best her philosophy (please click the button "Animal Communicati-on").
Since 1983 she has regular solo and group shows as a painter and creator of artistic videoclips in Germany and in abroad especially in the former Yoguslawia, in Italy, Sweden, the Nether-lands, in Colorado, California, Canada, Hawaii, China and in New York (USA). Various press releases in newspapers, magazines, three title covers of artmagazines and articles in five art-books got published (please see pressreleases). In the year 2000 she received a Gold Medal in Montreal.
