Milaidhoo Island has welcomed Russian artist and fashion illustrator Alena Lavdovskaya to the island for a unique art project: embracing and honouring Maldivian art and culture and creating island-inspired artworks.
During the months of July, Alena resided on Milaidhoo, creating classic and digital art pieces that fuse Maldivian tradition and culture with modern art.
Alena Lavdovskaya is the most famous Russian fashion illustrator, artist, founder of the first Fashion Illustration Studio in Russia, specializing in content for fashion & retail business, as well as the ambassador of the Winsor & Newton art materials brand.
Alena is the author of the online course "Commercial Fashion Illustration", and also creates and conducts unique offline master classes in Russia, England, Italy and Portugal.
Having worked with many famous fashion houses worldwide, illustrating their collections and designs, Alena Lavdovskaya is very well known in the creative fashion world and highly respected for her talent in skilful illustration.
Born to an artist family in Tbilisi, Georgia, Alena was surrounded by artistic endeavours, which helped her find inspiration and talent to pursue an art career.
Studying in the USA and Italy, she enjoyed international exposure from early on and has been involved in collaborations and workshops worldwide.
Alena has worked with some of the most renowned fashion houses and luxury brands such as Guerlain, Dior, Chanel, Lancome, Tiffany’s and Montblanc.
Alena prefers creating art from life, adding her style and perception to her creations. The results are unique and contemporary illustrations.
This unique initiative with Milaidhoo is a collaborative project with local Milaidhoo family members. It will focus on creating contemporary, island-inspired art pieces and presenting the Maldivian heritage to a broader audience.
The created artworks will be displayed and auctioned later in the year, with the proceeds being donated to marine conservation efforts in the Maldives.
“Milaidhoo constantly strives to create new and meaningful experiences for guests while fostering local talent as well as supporting marine conservation efforts,” Ahmed Shuhan, the General Manager of Milaidhoo, said.
“With the visit of Alena Lavdovskaya, our efforts to combine meaningful experiences for our guests and to support an environmental cause is an ideal pursuit towards the future. It is always great to include a creative and educative element in our island activities – as education does not necessarily have to be in a classroom but can be hands-on and entertaining.”
