Director & Collector

Manuelpillai Fine Arts is the collection of Jana Manuelpillai.

Jana has a wealth of experience behind him. His interest in art at a young age led him to a degree in Art History and English Literature, specialising particularly in Baroque 17th Century Art, European Modernism and the art of Rembrandt. This was followed by a First Class Masters degree in Museum Studies with emphasis on education.

His career has been vast, varied and international,spanning from Dulwich Picture Gallery and South London Gallery to The Barber Institute of Fine Arts and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in the USA. 

For the last eleven years he has been collecting art from the Asian subcontinent  and has had a special interest in art and spirituality as well as in documenting the Madras College of Art - the earliest British art school in India.
