Published

Ifuru Island Maldives has announced an unforgettable workshop with Australian artist Anna Lohe, where she will explain how she created “Ifuru Magic”, Ifuru’s signature artwork found throughout the resort. Anna will also be your painting coach, for you to create your own masterpiece during her 2 hours masterclass on 10 July 2024 at Ifuru Island Maldives. The masterclass is priced at $50++ per person including materials.

Anna Lohe is an Australian abstract artist based in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia (Garigal Land). She paints vibrant, imaginative works in acrylic on canvas featuring botanical, spiritual and native forest themes using colour palettes to suit contemporary homes.

She thrives by surrounding herself with colour and takes inspiration from the natural world. Most of Anna’s works are born from her passions of yoga, travel, friendships, and family. As a mum of two kids, Anna was born in Melbourne Australia and has worked in London as part of her 25-year career in advertising and marketing.

“I am so excited to see Ifuru resort in real life, as when I painted the signature artwork – the resort was not yet opened. I’ve loved following progress on Instagram but to be able to experience it with my family will be magic. The masterclass to inspire guests to paint, will be a highlight,” says Anna.

Anna is the talented artist responsible for the iconic “IFURU magic” art piece showcased in the suites and villas on Ifuru Island in the Maldives. Featuring local birds, flowers, fish, coral, and the famous Barbie pink lifeguard tower, the artwork beautifully encapsulates the island’s enchanting and distinctive charm.
