Life and career[edit]

Early Life[edit]

Anura was born in Sri Lanka and educated at Lumbini College (Colombo)[2]. He grew up in a home which surroundings were full of sketches of temple paintings and traditional Sinhalese art and he showed a passion and a skill for drawing from an early age.

His father rejected the idea of a career in art. Anura’s father, M.S Perera, hoped his son would become a Doctor, and though Anura would study in Biology stream for Advanced Level in School.[5]

Career beginnings[edit]

But a chance encounter with the artist P.A. Leelaratne turned Anura’s hobby into profession. Leelaratne introduced young Anura to the celebrated cartoonist Camillus Perera who helped him find a job as a cartoonist for the comic-strip paper ‘Suhada’ in 1980. In 1981 Upali Newspapers (Private) Limited was launched and he was recruited as an artist for the "Chitramitra" comic magazine by the group.
