In 2012 Ryan Roth was very impressed with this young artist, at 18 years old he showed great indications of developing into a very interesting artist for the future. While he’s still in full-time education studying architecture at university, Ryan Roth decided to take him on and we’ve been watching him develop as an artist and very excited to work with him in the years to come.

Artist statement

I’m 18 and alive, born and raised in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Growing up in the Maldives, I’ve always been inspired by nature. Chilly wind,  sunny skies and crystal seas still get my feet off the ground. You could say im a dreamer. I believe in art, beauty, individuality and the simplicity of things.

Fearless and captivating art inspires me.

My art portrays the minimalism of black and white as well as the chaotic beauty and mystery of doodling, zentangles, streams of flowing lines and the fascinating scent and touch of coffee.I work intimately with ink pens and graphite pencils. For me, the key to finishing a detailed art piece is immense patience and perseverance. I always carry a camera with me to capture organic and interesting patterns, shapes and designs I see every day. Whether it be on the road, in a mud puddle, the dancing  clouds, or in a trailing foot print, I always keep my inspiration rolling.
