Unathi Mkonto was born in Peddie, near Grahamstown, Eastern Cape. These are a few examples of his fashion illustration, we really enjoy his raw aesthetic. Unathi describes his work as characterized by its fluid lines and void, having no intention of developing a style but maintaining strong drawing.
He says,”Most of the time they are theatrical fashion images. By the time its complete it has covered different subjects in architectecture, automation, dressing or my circle of friends.
I am not making a living from drawing. Would love to do research work for Conde Nast, AMO, Y-3 or anything that’s completely now.”
