ARTRA Magazine is symbolic for more than what it was incepted a year ago. It has transformed into an imaginative space from a platform for artistic expression. It is now a creative journal where individuals explore and articulate the nature of Art; a common ground where a voice is given to different agendas of various artistic bodies and most importantly, a space where artists with different perspectives unite to showcase alternate identities to contemporary Sri Lankan artistry. The anniversary edition of the magazine is all about celebration. Celebrating those who have contributed to the magazine; sustaining of a unique space for artistic consciousness and most vitally, recognising artists who have excelled in their creation of exemplary works of Art. The editorial board consists of Sri Lanka’s most established personalities in the field of Art including Colombo Fashion Week President Ajai Singh; Gallerist and Curator Saskia Fernando; Sri Lanka’s premier choir Soul Sounds Founder Soundarie David; Author and Publisher Ameena Hussain; Sri Lanka’s only Cannes Award winner for film direction Vimukthi Jayasundara; theatre company Floating Space Artistic Director Ruhanie Perera; British School Colombo Head of Visual Arts Poornima Jayasinghe and Music matters Collective Co Founder and Director Dr. Sumudi Suraweera. The anniversary edition of the magazine (Edition 7) can be purchased at Barefoot, Odel, Sarasavi and Vijitha Yapa bookshops. For subscriptions call +94772305054.
