Dubai Airports marks 'Year of Zayed' with unique art exhibits

DUBAI, May 6, 2018

Earlier today, Dubai Airports marked the anniversary of the birth of Sheikh Zayed by launching an art exhibition inspired by his life and works at the Dubai International Airport (DXB).
As part of the ongoing celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Dubai Airports has created a dedicated ‘Year of Zayed’ gallery in Terminal 3, arrivals at DXB.

The pieces of art, specially commissioned as part of the artDXB programme, have been created by students of the Mawaheb from Beautiful People art studio in Dubai and Diaa Allam, Arabic calligraphy artist. In addition, the Mojo studio has produced a piece of mosaic art using imagery of His Highness.
Each of the contributing artists were given the theme ‘Inspired by Zayed’ and asked to produce something that would not only highlight the importance the legendary leader has within the UAE, but showcase it to the thousands of international passengers travelling from the terminal every day and spread his inspirational message around the world.
The five pieces produced by students of Mawaheb are creative interpretations on canvas of some of the inspirational quotes taken from HH Sheikh Zayed’s writing. Arabic calligrapher Allam was then asked to bring the pieces together by writing the quotes on the canvas over the painting.
Exhibiting by the side of these paintings is a mosaic style image compiled of images of Zayed and his life achievements which was designed and created by Mojo at their studio in Al Serkal Avenue. Egyptian artist, Allam, created an artistic impression portrait of Sheikh Zayed using his trademark Arabic calligraphy as a live activation on the launch day.
The ‘Year of Zayed’ is a tribute to HH Sheikh Zayed’s inspirational leadership which created a lasting vision of prosperity, determination and tolerance, all of which are firmly embedded in UAE culture. - TradeArabia News Service
