Hempel Galleries (HG) represents primarily Sri Lankan Artists, works collaboratively with the Colombo Art Biennale (CAB) as well as other art organizations and curators, establishing a holistic approach to promoting contemporary Sri Lankan art. The ethos of Hempel Galleries is to motivate artists in the development of their careers and to support and create opportunities for artists to further their
careers abroad, through exhibitions, artist in residency programmes and nominations for international art prizes. The majority of Sri Lanka’s most prominent artists have exhibited either at HG or CAB, and CAB 2012 hosted the largest number of artists participating in one single international art event in the country.
