ACCLAIMED CONTEMPORARY ARTIST ANA PUŠICA EXPLORES PERPETUALITY AND COMMUNITY AT PATINA MALDIVES

Ana Pušica to grace Patina Maldives with Fari Art Atelier Residency



Internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, Ana Pušica Kramer joins Patina Maldives for an exclusive art residency in the now well-established Fari Art Atelier. From January 22 to February 22, 2024, Ana Pušica will grace the shores of the Fari Islands, weaving a vibrant narrative of colour and emotion across her larger-than-life canvases.


Her artistry transcends boundaries, melding abstraction, and figuration into awe-inspiring masterpieces. Having exhibited globally, from New York to Beijing, Ana’s paintings are a physical, intuitive act rooted in movement. Described as a “beautiful fluorescent thunderstorm,” Ana’s art explores light and colour, capturing the energy of life itself.


The Fari Art Atelier which has previously hosted the likes of Daniel Arsham, Chris Stamp and David Nott, will be transformed into Ana’s studio and gallery showcasing her enthralling artworks — a mesmerising journey through poetry, memory, and the vibrant interplay of colour. Guests at Patina are invited to delve into Ana’s world, where each stroke reveals layers of meaning, evoking sensations of intense lightness and boundless interpretation.


At Patina Maldives, Ana will immerse herself in a month-long residency, inviting the Patina Maldives community or guests and team to witness her artistic fervour firsthand.
