Aishath Huda uses painting as a medium to blur the lines within collage, printmaking and installation. A meditative process of action and reaction, her paintings investigate consciousness, intersubjectivity and co-existence, with a huge focus on the intricacies of human perception. Her work translates into perceptual experiences of space, time and architecture. Using materials such as rice paper, textiles, oil, charcoal, pigments and Chinese ink— her work studies how human connection to nature relates to the quality of human experiences.
Huda is currently an Art M.F.A 2023 candidate at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In 2016, she received her BFA from China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, winning the 'Liu Fenming' Gold award. Since then, she has worked as a tenured teaching artist at the Maldives National University. She had a solo exhibition in 2019, titled The Bird and the Flying Fish at the National Art Gallery of Maldives.
Her work has been shown in several national and international exhibitions including Sardinia, Barcelona, Zanzibar, Thimphu, New Delhi, Beijing, Hangzhou, Xi'an and Shanghai.
