Eden within is a devout feminist contributing to the Islamic feminist movement and a character putting pressure on established organisations to get things going. After several years of observation, creating photo art on the theme, contributing imagery to non government organisations for use on flyers promoting our cause, sharing and promoting feminist content on social media, eden eventually ran into trouble.
From a very young age, eden was burdened with having to walk a difficult path and fought vehemently against inequality and injustice. Although previously a contributor for the Secular Democratic Madlives community and a contributor of art for the Maldivian LGBTQA community, eden's passion is working towards the empowerment of women within the Islamic community.
Eden withins entry into the art world was marked by the 'Imagining Our Future Together' art exhibition organized by the world bank followed by the 'The Great Divide' at OVADA, Oxford after a very long hiatus many years later. The return to the art gallery was rushed after several years of study of the challenges we face when envisioning a common future.
While photographs from the making of 'Eden Within : The Infiltration Prototype' were on display in three cities across Pakistan and photographs including a portrait were acquired by the World Bank's permanent art collection eden is mainly known to produce limited edition prints.
Driven solely by a love for larger than life white men and hypnotized by Hollywood movies and music, eden lived life to the fullest and fought alongside friends to bring in a new era. After a much needed holiday, funds raised by the sale of these prints will be spent on creating a safe haven for a Muslim artist collective. A safe space for a team producing art to change peconceptions about Islamic arts, dance and culture. A sanctuary that is a living and breathing work of art drawing attention to our cause.
