About the work

In my practice, I respond to the contemporary socio-political and cultural situation around me. I believe war is not a solution to any issue. I stand against war, violence, extreme Nationalism, militarization and terror. Although the Civil War in Sri Lanka is over, now I hear and see war continuing in other parts of the world. War is becoming an easy money-making business. Financing wars are everywhere. The so-called civilized world is killing innocent people ruthlessly to establish power over independent nations, people, and ethnic groups. Those who suffered from the Holocaust are now repressing other ethnic groups today. Extreme Nationalism and genocide are happening in occupied Palestine lands. Current war and bombings by the Israeli government in Gaza still kill innocent civilians, including children. Dead bodies and rubble of the destroyed city and dwellings are depicted in my drawing.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
