The pieces include 60 contemporary paintings done in varied styles by artists from different nationalities including Kamen Bonev, Brigitte Roshay, Harshad Badbe, Daria Avdeeva, Patricia Malek Rizk, Barbara Moerl Weidig, Jennifer Mueller-Barton, Simon Routledge, Richa Singh and Marwa Mohamed Al Suwaidi.

The paintings range from medium to large sizes with figurative and abstract images outweighing other forms. Some works are quite intense and brooding while others are a blaze of colour. Modernity epitomises this diversity through the polarities expressed in the paintings focusing on both life in an ultra-modern city and human emotions.

Art2Gether mirrors the urbanity of Dubai, the exaltation of everyday living in this magical and energetic metropolis.

Ahmed Badawy, Owner’s Representative and Director of Finance, Taj Palace Hotel Dubai, said: “I believe art is all around us. It is in everything we do and that is what this group of artists has attempted to portray.”

“Art2Gether is a breathtaking spectacle with each piece beautifully welded together. Looking at the paintings one feels a sense of awe that’s often associated with Dubai,” said Ayesha Chen McKeever, Chairwoman, DIAC.
