World Art Dubai, the regions most accessible and affordable retail art fair, is celebrating street art at the four-day art event, which runs until April 10, with its expanded Urban Art DXB zone. Home to 12 UAE based street artists, all of which are long-term professional aerosol painters, Urban Art DXB sees both live art creations across a huge canvas, with an exhibition of items for sale in the neighbouring section including canvases, prints, drawings and more. The area is curated by Louis Wright from Vandalist Art, Dubai street art specialists. Artists displaying their creative flair include George Rollo, Rabab Tantawy, iPOT, Maddy Butcher, Dozi Dreams, FINK 22, Maajed Ahmed, Culture, Maseda, Rayaan Cassiem, Marvelous Morph, Enforce One, Camila Schubert, Thais Kelly, and Satwa 3000.
“It’s amazing to bring such a diverse range of talent to World Art Dubai this year. We’ve really upped the mark with new installations including the Live Artist Battle Wall and Reverse Perspex Painting, both of which are harder than they look! As a brand we will continue to grow and push boundaries within every event we curate or play a role in,” said Wright. “It’s an exciting time for Street art, Urban Art and Contemporary Art and it’s a pleasure to be at the middle of all three.” Each day at 5pm street art fans can enjoy a live jam battle with two pairs battling it out to create a unique mural over 90 minutes. The audience decides the winner via social media and has already proven to be hugely popular.
