Reginald S. Aloysius
Born 1970
Lives and works in London


Reginald S Aloysius is a British Tamil Sri Lankan born in London and while initially beginning his studies in Economics and Politics at Manchester University it is this background that has informed his work exploring themes of globalisation, emigration, and destruction of tradition.
Aloysius travels extensively throughout Asia in particular India and Sri Lanka in order to document much of his source material.

After graduating from The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford University Aloysius spent many years freelancing as an Art Technician working directly with artists across Europe before completing a Masters at Kingston University on a research based drawing programme.
