arab dreem . 2013

art4sight invite . 2015

it's that time of year again where art is auctioned off for a good cause. the fifth edition of noor dubai's art4sight happens on tuesday, 28 april 2015 at the zabeel ladies club. for this year's edition, i have donated my illustration 'arab dreem' which i hope will successfully be auctioned off, and contribute to helping cure preventative blindness around the world.
arab dreem is one of my favorite illustrations, initially conceived for the publication never forget. it was also later exhibited in the past forward touring exhibition in the united states of america.
if you're a fan of my work, or a collector of the arts, i do hope you attend art4sight and help with your contributions. for a sneak peek of all the artworks included in the auction, have a look at the digital version of the auction catalogue. also included is a short description about arab dreem which i've shared below: 

"the illustration 'arab dreem' depicts some of the humorous shop signs found in the area called karama, in dubai. the illustration was one of the many results of a self initiated project depicting some of the forgotten areas around dubai. arab dreem speaks of the communities found in these forgotten areas, and the charm one finds when exploring these communities. from misspelt shop signs, to charming characters, one experiences a different side to dubai which is slowly getting lost."
