TEST PROGRAM / Emal de Lanerolle

Emal de Lanerolle

The piece I am submitting is a contemporary portrait, a very passionate and emotional “Covid Fling.” Of course for many, Covid has been tough, and has been lonely. So something like dating has to be navigated in a certain way, if any way. I ended up meeting someone, and we had a quick intense fling. During those three months, I was passionate enough to paint them. Looking back on it now, I really feel it represents and moment, a memory all during covid.


I am 1st generation Canadian born, cisgendered, pansexual male; also of Singhalese Sri Lankan decent. Creation is my ally, I am a very passionate artist. I work in the mediums of oil paint, sculpture, screen printing to name a few; painting is my real love.
