With Hussain Ihfal, Insha Hassan and Ahmed Azmee

Join us for a unique experience with some of the Maldives’ most up and coming artists. In partnership with a local NGO, the Maldivian Artist Community, three talented artists will be providing three classes that focus on each of their skills. Mr. Hussain Ihfal will be leading the course with his Coffee Art instruction at our own CAFÉ LUX*, using our fresh roasted coffee, Mr. Ihfal will teach the techniques in which he is able to create detailed portraits and beautiful scenes from the Maldives landscape. Two other local artists will also lead two separate workshops on acrylic painting, showcasing their own talents while also giving instructions and tips on how to paint with water colours and acrylics to create vibrant paintings for you to take home as a lasting memory of the island and the Maldives lifestyle.


Famous for his underwater painting and coffee art portraits, Ihfal is a talented artist from the Maldives. Meeting at cafes and drinking coffee is a popular pastime among Maldivians of the present generation, being a part of this culture, as an artist Hussain Ifhal’s (Ifa) role is to link the two elements, using his inspiration and vision to create new art. Appreciated by the local and international community, Ihfal recently held an exhibition with 66 artworks using coffee as a medium. His recent show took place in Abu Dhabi commissioned by the Royal Family.  He is also a talented underwater painter.
