Testimonials

MS. SHIFANA AMINATH, PROJECT MANAGER AT SEASIDE FINOLHU MALDIVES
Art for Interiors

"Raniya was very efficient and accommodating to our request to produce 82 individual pieces of resin artwork for our water villas. All of them were curated based on the concept our designers envisioned. In addition to creating these beautiful pieces, Raniya also welcomed our requests to adjust the frames and produce them with necessary fittings required. It was a proud moment to be able to display the work of a talented local artist amongst the renowned global artworks in Seaside Finolhu!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Raniya and the Oevaali Art Shop team during my time at Waldorf Astoria Maldives on a bespoke gift collection. An ambitious, talented and highly driven individual, Raniya has always embraced new challenges, was creative in finding solutions to every requirement, and delivered beyond expectations.

Raniya's determination and strategic approach to managing our brand is impressive, and she is always thinking proactively on our behalf with regards to different messaging and creative direction."

MS. AMARA SHAFEEQ
MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS AT CONRAD MALDIVES RANGALI ISLAND
Artisan Market, 2019

"Raya and Raniya from Oevaali Art Shop participated in Conrad Maldives Rangali Island's first ever Local Artisan's Market in December 2019. The professionalism and creative flair the sisters brought to the Market day was commendable and awe-inspiring. Even though the Market day was a single day event, the resort's many repeater guests were impressed with the Oevaali stall, despite being enacted in a short time frame. Raya and her team were very well-prepared and guests absolutely loved the stall and the wonderful products offered by Oevaali Art Shop. Moreover, Raya and her team are very flexible and have made wonderful suggestions for collaborations for major events at the resort such as planning giveaways for repeater guests/sales partners and gifts for Ithaa Undersea Restaurant's 15th anniversary. I look forward to work with her again and wish her all the best!"

AREA RETAIL MANAGER AT HURAWALHI MALDIVES, KUDADOO PRIVATE ISLAND, KOMANDOO MALDIVES AND KUREDU RESORT MALDIVES.
Stockist, Bespoke Designs & Corporate Gifting, Art for Interiors

"Idyllic Maldivian lifestyles are clearly reflected on Oevaali creations. From the azure water colour seen on the resin paintings to the bold yet soft strokes of lines on the made to order acrylic arts, each piece is sure to be unique. Founded and helmed by the capable duo Raniya and Raya Mansoor alongside partners Ismail Rasheed and Ali Ajikko; the Oevaali partnership with Kuredu resort has grown steadily over the years. As a stockist with custom orders, Oevaali always manages to capture our vague ideas and bring them into beautiful creations. One of the first authentic local artists/companies we have the pleasure to work with; their products are symbolic to this tiny country with the magnitude of hidden talents all around.

Oevaali over the years has expanded and ventured into many lines; never straying away from the path which makes them so recognizable to both international and local clients. Their service is top notch; delivering on promises and the ability to make it work within the tight requests we often come with. Customer service should be an epitome of what Oevaali offers; great vision, execution and follow up services. We are proud to be working alongside Oevaali and have their products feature not only in Kuredu but also our other sister properties like Komandoo, Hurawalhi and Kudadoo private residences."

Art For Interiors:" Mosaic" Resin Art Tondo by Raniya Mansoor, 2019
Art For Interiors: "Turtle" Clay Sculpt by Imma Rasheed, 2019

"When the time came to decorate a newly opened office of our company, it was not easy to find an appropriate art piece, suitable for a working environment, and at the same time elevating the office space. I wanted something more than just adding color to the walls. Luckily, I’ve come across Oevaali Art Shop and found not one, but three beautiful pieces for our office, a painting, resin piece, and stone turtle sculpture which add a beguiling Maldivian touch to an office in the heart of Male. Needless to say, since then I have been back to Oevaali shop numerous times, always leaving with a gorgeous gift for a friend or a bespoke piece for home decor".

MR. ALAIN TREFOIS
CLUSTER DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS AT KURAMATHI MALDIVES, KANDOLHU MALDIVES, MAAFUSHIVARU MALDIVES
Christmas Market Events at Kuramathi Island Resort, Maldives

"Innovative, quality, inspiring are just a few expressions I would use to describe the excellency of the artwork of Raniya. Kuramathi had the idea of providing a Maldivian cultural event during our busy festive period and Raniya knew exactly what we were looking for. A few stands with local hand art craft and some cultural expositions with local painters and sculptors, a full set up of a Maldivian traditional village, its roots with music and dance and then discovering the real avant-garde and trendy artwork of Raniya and her team made the entire venue one of our biggest success stories. From this moment onwards we have repeated this story and still Raniya does surprise each time she visits us".

"Haven" Resin Art Tondo by Raniya Mansoor, 2019
 
"Over a year ago, my curiosity was peaked by an advertisement for the Oceanic Exhibition in Male’, Maldives. Among the exhibits one piece caught my eye and while I had not planned to buy anything, I knew I would not want to be parted from this beautiful circular piece of art. The stunning colours of ‘Haven’ made me feel enveloped again in the deepest blues of the ocean I encounter during dives around the Maldives, both warm and mysterious. Having this in my home keeps me close to the ocean and its beauty".
 
HOTELIER, MALDIVES
Corporate Gifts: Bespoke Business Notebooks, 2018
 
"We wanted to come up with a simple but elegant souvenir to be given away at the Hotelier Maldives GM Forum; it was the fourth forum we were hosting and also the 5th anniversary of Hotelier Maldives. We decided it will be a branded notebook and requested Oevaali Art Shop to give us a sample dummy. Raya was quick to come up with exactly the kind of item we had in mind and once we approved the dummy, the rest was smooth and quick. The books branded with Hotelier Maldives logo arrived on time and proved very popular with all the delegates and we are thinking of producing more of the same... And certainly this is not the last time we will commission Oevaali Art Shop".
 
MS. SHOKO NODA
FORMER UN RESIDENT COORDINATOR AND UNDP RESIDENT REPRESENTATIVE TO MALDIVES
Art For Interiors: Acrylic Fine Art By Raya Mansoor, 2018
 
"Oevaali Art Shop collections caught my heart when I had the opportunity to visit their very first exhibition in Male' and saw a wide range of its art. When I learned that they do custom-made pieces, I jumped on the opportunity and ordered a painting.
 
My choice of coconut palms and palm fronds for the painting was my personal interpretation of the serene beauty and culture I have experienced in this country. In Ms. Raya's work, I found a lovely blend of both artistic skill and a story of my love for Maldives. They have become a little bit of Maldives that I will always take with me.
 
I was also very impressed with Ms. Raya's professionalism and customer-oriented service. She invested time to understand what I wanted for the painting and maintained regular communication with me until the final product was delivered within the agreed timeframe".
 

COCO PRIVE PRIVATE ISLAND, MALDIVES
100% Silk Bespoke Scarf Art, Production & Packaging, 2017

"Coco Privé Private Island had the pleasure of working with Oevaali Art Shop to conceptualize and craft a selection of bespoke silk scarves. Following a detailed brief, the team handled the entire project over a three to four-month period. Their responsibilities include budget management, concept and design development, sourcing of materials, liaising with international suppliers, overseeing production, and quality checking of final items.

From the get-go, we were impressed by their sheer professionalism, efficiency and approachability. No request was ever too great or too small to handle, and setbacks and challenges faced during the project were swiftly provided with an appropriate solution. Their ability to handle such a complex project unanimously confirmed to us that the Oevaali was a trustworthy and reliable partner.

Coco Privé looks forward to once again collaborating with Oevaali Art Shop in the near future”.
