Amidst the tranquil beauty of the Maldives, Suvāsthi Gallery is set to take travellers and art enthusiasts on an intimate journey with the world of "Silence & Noise'' - an art exhibition by local artist, Mohamed Ikram (a.k.a. Araakaa). The exhibition will take place at Oaga Art Resort throughout the final week of October 2023.
Ikram uses the medium of sketching and drawing intuitively to reflect on his own personal nature in the midst of the Maldivian society as well as in a larger political context. The drawings being showcased were completed during the years 2020 – 2022. As per the artist, “These drawings are a documentation of a time of global and personal significance. I lived in Male’ and its suburbs most of my life, and my work is influenced by the city and its social environment”. The exhibition was first showcased at 350 Gallery, Male’ in June 2023.
In addition to hosting this exhibition, Suvāsthi will also be showcasing part of the collection of artwork displayed at the resort’s Veyoge Gallery Villas during the same week. Suvāsthi Gallery currently curates the largest collection of local art held at a resort in Maldives, comprising of 154 pieces by over 40 local artists. The gallery is set to organise such caravan exhibitions regularly at Oaga Art Resort, opening the chance for travellers to directly interact with the local art community in a one of a kind experience.
