Online art platform Emergeast is at the forefront of supporting emerging Middle East artists and will be hosting their fourth auction in November.


If you are interested in art inspired by the region, or are looking to dip your toe into collecting, the Edition 4 auction allows you to bid on the works from exciting fresh talent.


After months of research, Emergeast founders Dima Abdul Kader and Nikki Meftah have become extremely good at spotting creatives from countries like Lebanon, Egypt, Kuwait and Iran, and have brought together 28 such artists to showcase their work next month. Their digitally modern approach and appealing price guide aims to attract younger audiences into the art world, as well as engage with avid collectors who want to have a piece of art that has regional meaning.
