Rooba has been drawing since she was a little girl and being a creator felt like it was on her soul. However, it wasn´t until she tried a few jobs where she had a 9 to 5 shift – as many people told her she wouldn´t make it as an artist – that she discovered, this was not aligned to who she was. Her style has evolved into different styles and she has been learning and discovering herself in the creative journey. Rooba´s approach to inventing styles is systemically.
At first, she finds inspiration from other artists and then implements their style merged with her own. She practices one style for some time and refines it until she finds another art style to practice and refines again.
In the process, she likes to learn new techniques at different art courses, and combining different variations is how she likes to experiment. This can mean different mediums like acrylic paint, pencil, ink, digital painting to different themes like fantasy, dark art, artistic nudes, landscapes and more.
Her passion and talents took her to London, where some of her paintings were displayed at the London Bomber Gallery along with other international artists.
Come and join Rooba in some of the following activities:
- Abstract painting
- Landscape painting
- Intuitive painting (kids only)
From an early age, Lujain has had interests in different forms of art and creative works. Recently, he came across Mixed Media Arts, which fascinated him, and his journey started in 2019. As a nail artist, his projects contain thousands of screws, which are later painted in Oil color. His passion for this kind of art, dedication, and patience are combined with one of the most iconic parts of the Maldives, the marine life.
One of his most iconic projects, The Survival, has the aim to create awareness for the delicate beauty of our marine life and that we all are equally responsible to create a safe environment to protect them. Let’s all appreciate and protect these beautiful and gentle creatures. The project contains approximately 7000 screws that are hand-painted.
Come and join Lujain in some of the activities and live demonstrations he´ll be doing during the art week.
