Pleasant weather, great music, and fantastic artwork...couldn't have asked for a better night out. Artezaar.com, an online art gallery in Dubai, had a two-day art exhibition at DIFC Art Nights. There were 25 artists + 6 Child Artists who participated and MY GOD - the artwork was just fabulous.
The place came to life as more people started gathering to appreciate the artworks and listen to good music.
Artezaar's paintings stood out as they were made out of recycled products, or things you found at home. The main motto I felt was to spread awareness and to save and nurture mother earth. As it's said 'every small attempt counts' but this was a beautiful one.
There were artists who were giving life to the canvas on the spot, with their graffiti artworks and live painting events, and within a few minutes everything was dipped in vibrant colors.
One of my favorite paintings was "A Wave of Hope" by Amruta Ketkar. This art was made out of shopping receipts, tissue papers, sand, carton boxes scrape, broken silk threads, peel off acrylic colors from palette, old painting pieces, silk threads pieces, brown packaging paper, dry coconut scrapes, foil paper pieces. The idea of creating such a beautiful and stunning piece of art just blows my mind.
It was my 1st time at an art exhibition and I had a good time. Looking forward to being a part of more events like these! Congratulations to all the Artezaar Artists!
