Irushi is an educator, animator and illustrator based in Colombo, Sri Lanka. She has a background in English Studies and is currently a lecturer of English language at the University of Colombo. She began experimenting with animation a few years ago, using her study table and a stop-motion app on her mobile phone. Since then, her animated films have won awards and been screened in numerous festivals in Sri Lanka and abroad. In her recent master’s thesis, she explored how personal history and inherited memories are archived through the form of comics in autobiographical graphic novels. Through her work, she continues to question how stories can be told in new ways, by exploring the depths of movement through space and time.
