Jana Manuelpillai MA is the man behind The Noble Sage. A British-born Sri Lankan, he leads a new breed of home-grown talent forging fresh and exciting links with the subcontinent from which his family originate. Jana has a wealth of experience behind him and some impressive qualifications to boot. His interest in art at a young age led him to a degree in Art History and English Literature from Birmingham University where he quickly became well-known amongst his peers and professors for his robust presentation style. This was swiftly followed by a First Class Masters degree in Museum Studies at Leicester University, thus cementing his career in art museums and galleries. His career throughout has been vast, varied and international,spanning from Dulwich Picture Gallery and South London Gallery to The Barber Institute of Fine Arts inBirmingham and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in the USA. Most recently, Jana worked as Head of Education at the Mall Galleries just off Trafalgar Square. Here he added to his knowledge of contemporary art at the same time as utilising his own unique business sense and entrepreneurial spirit in relation to the management, fundraising, sponsorship and marketing of the Mall Galleries’  Education Department. In December 2004, Jana left the Mall Galleries to burn a trail for himself in the contemporary art world. The Noble Sage is the product of this high endeavour - an intelligent symphony of Jana’s own unique cultural background, his belief in a new world culture, and his knowledgeable love of the arts.
