Asia Hillion is of French and Sri Lankan descent, based in Galle where she paints and lives. Self-taught from a very young age, her life has been completely dedicated to art. Asia was formed by the relaxed pace of island life, absorbing the tropical Sri Lankan scenery and energy all around her.
Her artwork can be described as a tropical fantasy. She likes to get lost in the process of lines and patterns, colours, and meticulous detail. Her influences as an artist are first and foremost everything she sees, feels and experiences. To her, painting is a way to express colour in all its beauty.
Asia incorporates bright swathes of sari material into her collages. She is inspired by Sri Lanka and India, the tones and the tropical essence of these two countries are the foundation for all she creates.
