About Hempel Galleries
Hempel Galleries (HG) was founded in 2003 in the ancient Unesco protected Dutch Galle Fort on the South coast of Sri Lanka. It was set up to provide a platform for Sri Lankan contemporary artists, to showcase the ever-strengthening artistic talent emerging from Sri Lanka and the ever-increasing need for forums from which this talent can be seen internationally.
Hempel Galleries currently runs two art galleries, one in the heart of central Colombo’s Cinanmon Gardens and one in Galle Fort, operating as commercial galleries and specializing in contemporary art from Sri Lanka.
