“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Confucius
My name is Sara Japanwalla and I am an artist, illustrator and art blogger from Dubai.
With an abundance of fashion bloggers in the region but hardly any specialising in art, I wanted to fill a specific niche in the blogosphere and so my art/fashion blog was born!
With a strong focus on Middle Eastern and South Asian Contemporary art, I also write detailed articles on fashion, illustration, events, theatre, culture, travel and life in Dubai.
As well as this, I post regularly about my latest illustration projects, my progress as an artist and I feature my signature fashion illustrations in my reviews as a fresh alternative to photography.
To many, there is a common misconception that writing about art has to be done in a very formal and overblown prose that baffles those who are not in the industry. I try to bridge the gap and so I have kept the tone of my blog light, humorous, easy to understand and yet still very informative.
My art blog has been featured in Velvet Magazine’s Art Issue in March 2014 and I work with a variety of PR companies such as The Qode, Katch PR and The Portsmouth Group on covering art/fashion events.
From the dressy “hoity-toity” formal events to the more youthful, underground “hipster” ones..you can be sure I got it covered!
I love supporting local talent, so If you are an artist, designer or illustrator interested in being featured on the blog feel free to send me some examples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org
