Dubai is buzzing with art fever at the moment. We’ve had Comicon, World Art and with the onset of Fashion Forward over the weekend, the art and fashion scene is at it’s adrenalin peak, and I’m loving every single minute of it !
World Art Dubai took place at the DWTC from the 8th to the 11th and it had exhibits of artists from all brushstrokes of this world. Naturally I took like a million pics but I’ve just selected a few from the many that caught my eye. I’ve tried to reference all the artists but if I haven’t you can find out more on www.worldartdubai.com
Some of these pieces are exhibited in certain galleries in the Al Serkal Avenue and Al Quoz but most only came down for the event.
A lot of contemporary and emerging art can also be found at the Mussawir Gallery in Al quoz. I absolutely loved the array of expressions on these needle point canvases.
These two pieces on the Kaaba are actually exhibits from the UK but more info can be found on www.ahlanart.com
I don’t know who this is by but it’s absolutely captivating.
As a MUA, it’s so visually enthralling to see a mash up of colorful brush strokes determining the contours of the face. These visual artists are geniuses in my books and honestly, I’m one of those ppl that you’d have to drag out of museums, art exhibits and libraries.
I decided that I had to be all bright and colorful for WAD, and I’m finally trying to break away from all the black in my wardrobe so this was definitely a new look for me.
Kimono/abaya/Jalabeya – I can’t describe what it is, well, I found it in a market stall at Southbridge, and she’s an egyptian designer but I can’t find her details. Her label is called Arabian Princess Designs.
White Maxi Dress is Asos.
Neon Yellow bag is Kate Spade which I bought on one of my NYC trips.
Studded wrist accessories are from these mini stands that I found between Soho and ChinaTown in NYC.
Shoes are Valentino found at Moda House in Jumeirah Plaza.
