Fashion and Lifestyle Illustrator Nadeesha Godamunne, known professionally as Mokshini, was born in Sri Lanka but raised in New Zealand, immersed in a natural beauty that helped shape her identity as an artist. When asked her about her childhood, she told us, “It now seems magical. Nature was abundant; I remember hiking and canoeing on camping trips as a teenager.” While she is known for her work in fashion, these ink and watercolor paintings of her childhood home reveal another side of Mokshini, infused with deep love and a touch of nostalgia, along with all the wit and fluidity of her editorial illustrations.
Mokshini has collaborated with brands such as Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren as an illustrator and textile designer. Her illustrations have appeared in V Magazine, Huffington Post, Fashion Unfiltered and Afropunk. She works regularly as a live illustrator for Prabal Gurung, Alice and Olivia, Brother Vellies and Tadashi Shoji during New York Fashion Week. She is known as much for her clever and observant renderings of people as she is for her work’s graceful yet energetic style.
