Art Fair Dubai 2014

was held here on the 1st and 2nd November! 
They invited and encouraged galleries 
and artists
 to make the most of this exclusive platform
 for presenting their artwork and gain prominence.

Artists and Art galleries 
from all around the world participated
 and what an awesome Art Fair it was.
So much for art...colours ....
what an experience!

I really liked this sculpture

The vibrant colours were just enough to make my heart go oolala!

The fine details and super textures were appreciable!

To add to the whole charm ...
the famous Indian artist A. V. Ilango
 was there to paint live in front of us!
 Now what else could my little artist heart ever wish  for :)
It was so fascinating
 to watch him start from simple dabs of colour
 to a beautiful painting...
his palette knife moved like magic
 and I stood there appreciating how the eyes
...hands and thoughts coordinated with each other
 to result into a beautiful piece of art!

and there was live music too!!

The painting finally...

I held a workshop the next morning.
 Drawing and painting on re-used tea bags...
now this was something they had never heard about!

The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a creative fever. It is not a drug, it is a particular state when everything happens very quickly, a mixture of consciousness and unconsciousness, of fear and pleasure ... it's a little like making love, the physical act of love. Francis Bacon

What an amazing experience !!


  1. It sounds like it was a lovely and very inspirational affair. I haven't had the time to be in an art show in several years, so I miss the creative energy that can be felt in them. Blessings, my friend!
