About Joseph Louis Gallery
Founded in 2000, Joseph Louis Gallery is a premium picture framing and art gallery based in Colombo. We carry a wide range of imported frames in all colours and sizes to meet every customers’ needs. Our framing abilities do not end at Paintings and Pictures alone. We can frame almost anything you bring to us! We have framed everything from dried flowers, Chinese fans, historical artifacts, tapestries and even your child’s favourite stuffed toy.
Our gallery has a tasteful selection of oil and water colour paintings from established, as well as up and coming local artists. We also carry a collection of prints and pictures of old Sri Lanka.
Delivering superior service at affordable, realistic prices is our goal and aspiration.
The founder, the late Mr. Ranjan Morais, who had been in the Gem and Jewelry trade for over 25 years, noticed the need for affordable, high quality picture framing in Colombo. This realization initiated the development of what is today one of Sri Lanka’s leading picture framing shops and art gallery’s.
Naming the Gallery after his late father was in gratitude for what his father had taught him about the ethics and values of the business world. Joseph Louis always believed that the customer must receive the very best service and always at a reasonable price. He also taught all his children of the importance of punctuality, especially when dealing with customers. Keeping true to his teachings we pass on these services to our customers.
In 2009 Ranjan’s daughter Petal joined the family business. She had spent 8 years in the United States completing her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Masters in Business Administration while working in Human Resources. The combination of these skill sets gives Petal a special ability to connect with the customers and make sure their every need is met.
