It's Art Nation Time!
Maria Iqbal

From furniture to metal work, plastic art to graffiti, miniature jewellery to makeup, creative expression will be given a free hand as shopping centre BurJuman hosts an expanded edition of Art Nation. The show aims to promote UAE artists, and will include work from Ashwin Pillai, a doctor  who will showcase 3D art, Abdul Karim, a self-taught artist and architect who works on precise line drawings, and Maria Iqbal, a furniture artist who will work live at the show along with a nine-year-old DJ who will play tunes for her to paint to! Live performance art by makeup artists, musicians, singers and dancers will round off the agenda. 

Zareen Khan, Founder of w2w events, said,“We encourage and offer a platform to the numerous talented artists residing in the UAE with events such as Art Nation. The aim of Art Nation is to make art approachable to everyone, hence BurJuman seemed like an ideal venue as it is located in the heart of Dubai and has a management who is incredibly supportive of the local art scene, which has made it possible for Art Nation to attract more than 50 artists this year.”

INFO: Free, 21 to 23 February and 28 February to 2 March 2,  4pm until 9pm, Next to Virgin Megastore, BurJuman.
