World’s first underwater resort-based art exhibition










September 26, 2013, Maldives: New for 2014, Andreas Franke, one of the world’s most revolutionary artists, will be displaying his magical Phantasy Fairytale exhibition for guests of NIYAMA and Huvafen Fushi, giving guests at these Per AQUUM Maldivian properties the opportunity to experience the depths of the ocean at a completely new level. Phantasy Fairytale will be on display from 4th March 2014 through the end of May 2014 as part of Per AQUUM’s renowned Dream Calendar.


Trailblazing another WORLD FIRST, Per AQUUM will simultaneously unveil four stunning artworks underwater at NIYAMA and Huvafen Fushi, highlighting the brilliance of the underwater structures at both properties. At NIYAMA, the artworks will be viewed from SubSix, the world’s first underwater music club, where guests will be able to appreciate the hypnotizing images whilst dancing the night away or enjoying a long sub aquatic lunch. The LIME Spa at Huvafen Fushi will take ocean living to a whole new level as spa goers enjoying treatments will be able to lose themselves in Franke’s artworks as they are being pampered under the sea.


Committed to breaking boundaries, this Per AQUUM and Andreas Franke collaboration spins the typical art exhibition on its head giving the world a mind blowing interpretation of underwater life….. offering views underwater!


Andreas Franke’s fascination with the sub aquatic world stems from his two passions in life: photography and diving. His “Sinking World” concept, which he created in 2010, is a natural combination of the two. Years ago, whilst diving on an Austrian shipwreck in Croatia, Andreas took pictures and upon returning home to Vienna, he realized that “something was missing.”  That something was the mystical creatures that are recognizable as the protagonists in Franke’s “Sinking World” images and now the “Phantasy Fairytale” works too.
