You know what Dubai needs MORE of? (hint..it’s not a mall)
Street Art!!!!! Im a big fan of outdoor galleries and the energetic vibe they bring to open spaces – which is why I was stoked when I got the opportunity to create a mural for the region’s first outdoor gallery situated in Jumeirah Lake Towers.
JLT’s Art Outdoor Gallery is an exciting project launched by Concordia and it’s all about bringing art to the community by creating a platform for local artists to promote themselves by allowing them to reach a larger public.
They provided all the artists with a huuuge canvas for us to paint the artwork of our choice and they installed it on the site – what a relief because I’m wayyyy too spoilt/precious to paint outside in this summer heat!!!!!
The artworks will be displayed outside on stands along pathways for as long as possible. I was toying with the idea of doing a massive painting but since I’m known for fashion illustration, I thought that’s what I should stick to.
Here’s a few photos of the process from beginning to end.
Check out my artwork along with other talented artists at JLT, Cluster D – it’s downstairs right opposite Zoom Supermarket. Don’t forget to show me some love and tag me when you see it!
