Dubai Online Art GalleryArtezaar has brought together local artists for a unique virtual exhibition that aims to shed light on environmental sustainability. Curated by Diyali Sen Bhalla, the "Earth" themed exhibition comprises 33 stunning mixed media and sustainable artworks created by 25 UAE based artists of 10 different nationalities, in addition to six children’s paintings that celebrated their love for "Mother Earth", demonstrating that age is no barrier to creativity.
The artworks were first displayed at the 10th edition of DIFC Art Nights on 17th and 18th November 2020, where visitors were offered the opportunity to learn about environmental issues and how to live more sustainably from Unite for Planet, a community of environmentalists, along with their partners: Azraq, DGrade, GreenFootprint.ae and Plastic Free UAE.
The exhibition was opened by Mr. Khalil Abdulwahid Hassan, Director of Fine Arts Department, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, Mr. Saleh Al Akrabi, CEO of DIFC Properties and Mr. Faisal Abdulqader, a well-known Emirati artist.
Saleh Al Akrabi, CEO of DIFC Properties commented: “We were pleased to welcome the tenth season of DIFC Art Nights, one of DIFC’s most anticipated lifestyle events of the year.
