Maldha Mohamed

Maldha Mohamed

Maldives • Born in: 1997

Painters

Maldivan artists

Maldha Mohamed is a 24 year old, self taught contemporary artist working in oil paints located in the Maldives Islands. Her art is a visceral representation of how she views behavior and emotion, particularly in relation to her own dreams and what she observes around her. It consists of fragmented portraiture and emotion expressed by isolated human features. 

Her subjects are rendered in a contemporary manner, with hints of surrealism, through heavily textured surfaces. Their striking hues and a powerful play on shadows give her pieces incredible life and depth. The artist aims to convey her subjects as if they are in a battle against time, always fleeting. She wishes for the viewer to see beyond the shattered nature of her subjects and explore what is beyond the canvas, something at which the observer can only guess.

“I like the overall mystery behind the fragments. I like to think of them as unfinished conversations and expressed emotions. Something that always lingers."
