This is a list of Maldivian artists whose work deserve more recognition. I consider all of these people to be living legends. The importance of their work will only be seen in the years to come.
I decided to create this list as there is a severe lack of introspection among the Maldivian art community. We are always looking outwards for inspiration when there is so much good work being put out amongst ourselves. It is not complete, but I see that as a good thing. It just means that there is more yet to discover and more yet to come.
So, in no particular order, here are some of the greatest Maldivian Visual Artists of the 21st century.
