In the last few years, UAE has seen great success in its cultural scene with Dubai being a leading city in art exhibitions.It comes as no surprise as its rich Arab culture when relayed in art is enough to draw in crowds. The open migration policy in the region has also played a large part as it allows thousands of creative minds into the region. With the increasing diversity in Dubai’s culture, there is no shortage of art to dazzle the crowds. This coupled with the increasing number of art lovers, has turned it into a haven for those who want to promote their art.
Dubai is known to offer a wide range of art. From contemporary portrait artists to artists of surrealism, variety is no problem. As a result, galleries have something for everyone and because of this have achieved great success. Dubai has easily managed to draw in not only local audiences and artists but international ones as well. This is probably due to appreciation for old and emerging artists alike.
Dubai Art World in itself, as one of the most popular art fairs in the region, is home to a variety of artists and their brilliant works. Bringing in artists from all over the world, it gives a chance for them to promote their own culture by showing off their work to the world. Getting a chance to participate in the show is its own reward as artists get recognition while using the experience to learn from those of different backgrounds from theirs.
