Artists to Note at World Art Dubai in 2019 as Event Celebrates It’s Fifth Year

Fresh off the heels of Art Dubai, World Art is right around the corner for another year, and here are some of the artists whose work we are keen to see.


As Dubai Art season continues, another major event is fast approaching in our calendar. World Art Dubai will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre between Wednesday, April 3rd and Saturday, April 6th for 2019.


As opposed to just appreciating creative talent from a distance, the aim of the World Art Dubai is to bring the creations of artists into your home by selling a range of pieces from regional and global artists.


For 2019, more than 3,000 prints, sculptures and paintings will go on sale to the public. But ahead of the event, we’ve picked out just a handful of the amazing artists that we can’t wait to see.


Muna Balfaqeeh


Needless to say, there will be many incredible artists showcasing their works for the occasion. But if you want to explore – and maybe purchase – the works of some local talents, then make sure you stop by Muna Balfaqeeh’ space. Her multi-media work is broad, and she captures her culture and local heritage in a variety of ways, from merging abstract art with Arabic calligraphy to crafting fine, classic realism artworks.

Aarav Verma


The youngest artist at the exhibition, if you can make it to Aarav Verma’s stand, you must. The ten-year-old boy from Dehli creates works that are full of colour and imagination, just as you might expect and even hope of a child. He creates sculptures and paintings using a mix of media and technique but always capturing the view of a child.

Zahra Goulamhoussen


If you’re fascinated by architecture, then ensure that you swing by Zahra Golamhoussen’s stand. Throughout her career, she’s been inspired by two (somewhat opposing) factors; wildlife and architecture, particularly that of the Middle East. She works equally with colour and black and white – often pasting one over the other – and incorporates and fascinating level of detail into her creations.
