Lives and Works: Kesbewa
Lushani Athukorala was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
She has been drawing from a really young age and has been influenced more and more towards art due to her uncles who are also artists. She comes from a family of artists from the maternal side. The time she was in fashion school she has been researching different subcultures all over the world and
has mainly taken a huge interest to the Anime & Manga art style and culture. Unlike the realistic art which has been done since ancient times, Lushani is more interested in creating pieces that are more surreal and bizarre. She wants to bring out more unique artworks that have never been done before, a mix of modern and realism. She usually draws out her emotions or how she would identify aspects of certain things in her own little world inside of her head and just lays it out on a material of her choice.
