Anoma is an alumna of Central St Martin’s College, University of the Arts, London, UK. She has exhibited extensively internationally and showed at the 58th Venice Biennale. Anoma has also exhibited at Sotheby’s Gallery, Hong Kong and her solo exhibitions have included those in London, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, Maldives and New Delhi, with group shows in Singapore, Brisbane, Dubai, Colombo, Hong Kong and London. 

Often suggestive and implied the paintings are reflections on man's existential anxieties, contemporary concerns about the human condition, and the fragile state of the planet. Working in oils, mixed media, sculpture, video and digital art, her multimedia trilingual exhibitions on Climate Emergency, Sustainability, Inclusivity and Reconciliation are themes she continues to push boundaries on.

This monograph encapsulates several decades of the artist's exhibitions on inclusivity, transformation and coexistence with man and the planet through 200 illustrations presented chronologically, describing the stylistic shifts and thematic preoccupations.

It includes a rare description of the artist's creative process and personal journey and includes insightful essays by Professor Emeritus Gananath Obeyesekere, Rosalyn d Mello, Richard Simon and Professor Emerita Jane Rapley OBE.
