World Art Dubai features a vast collection of 3,000 paintings

Visit the World Art Dubai at the Dubai World Trade Centre to find your masterpiece. Just one day is left for you to get a coveted piece.

The World Art Dubai, which opened on Wednesday and concludes today, features a vast collection of 3,000 paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs.  It costs from as low as $100(Dh367).

The event is purposely priced reasonably, to make sure that the art on display remains available and affordable to everyone from first-time buyers to long-time connoisseurs.

The section – ‘Art for Every Wall’ includes dozens of artworks priced below Dh3,000, providing the opportunity for a wider audience to take home an original piece of art.

Over 35 international galleries are participating in the exhibition, collectively representing 120 artists ranging from newcomers to established and famous artists. The event also has dedicated pavilions from Europe, Japan, Ukraine and the United States. To honour UAE and the region, the event has included ‘Exhibition Islam’ – dedicated to artists who call the Middle East home, or have their familial roots here.

The opening day of World Art Dubai had a seven-minute speed-painting activation with Victor Sitalli, a deaf and mute artist representing Beautiful People, the Dubai-based studio for special needs adults.

Sitalli, a native of Zambia, is to hold sign language teaching workshops as part of ‘The Talks’ initiative of World Art Dubai’s educational programming.

The fair gives buyers the opportunity to interact with the artists which provides invaluable insight into what they were attempting to accomplish.
