Nathaniel Alapide and His Work

Prior to his visit, Alapide has brought to life an awe-inspiring piece of art. The piece showcased his exceptional talent and creativity to various Sun Siyam Resorts. This was done in celebration of Easter as well, with the expansive beach of the resort serving as his canvas.

Alapide meticulously crafted his sand art, incorporating elements of local culture, marine life, and the serene ambiance of the island. Utilizing only his hands and simple tools, Alapide’s deft touch transformed the grains of sand into a breathtaking visual spectacle.

Working at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi has been an incredible experience. The natural beauty of The Maldives served as the perfect inspiration for my artwork. I am honoured to have had the opportunity to share my passion with guests from around the world, says Nathaniel Alapide.

Alapide’s creation at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi transcended the boundaries of traditional art forms. His artwork embodied the ephemeral beauty and harmony of nature. The intricate details and sheer scale of the sand art left onlookers in awe. Alpadine’s artwork truly captured the essence of the Maldives’ enchanting allure.
