Street Night Art


The beginning of the new year could not have been more arty !!

Dubai is a plethora of art and culture
and this beautiful city keeps surprising me with various opportunities
to nurture my passion for art
and at the same time meet and learn from other artists !!

I am a part of Dubai Art Fans 
which aims at working together
 on community art projects for public displays.

They can also be found at Meet Up and facebook.
This group, under the leader ship of  Mona Al - Assa'ad strongly believes in 
painting together
holding workshops
and learning new techniques from each other.

All of us in this group are striving hard
 to turn our dreams into plans....!!

Now twenty artists
 from this beautiful group Dubai Art Fans 
are participating in a wonderful event called Street Night Art !! 

Can you smell the excitement ? 
I am sure you can !!



It is an initiative of all quoz project.

The aim of this project is to create interaction between cultures, 
participation and creativity from over 200 nationalities
 united in one city and that being Dubai. 

Street Night Art is being held on the 24th of this month 
from six in the evening till midnight....Isn't that amazing !!!

Around fifty artists, 
and I am one of those lucky ones of course :)
 will be painting on the streets of Dubai...all together...live !!!!!

Just imagine the arty aura that would be spread all around ....
 oh I am so anxiously looking forward to all that fun!!
...and all this fun for a cause....what else could I wish for !!
The art pieces so produced will be auctioned 
and the money will be used for laborers in Dubai !!


Now how about some art work that I have done recently....





He is a Motu (fat) Chaiwaala (tea seller) blowing the Indian trumpet !!
 Can you guess what is that 
tiny sheet of delicate paper ??
 ...Hahaha...I have done this illustration on a used tea bag!!

I have just finished a project on "Chai" ... 
the national drink of India....as I call it  :)
 for my favorite ezine called The Indian Trumpet ... 
I will be posting the other illustrations as soon as the magazine is out !




Some zentangling on a used tea bag again :)




...and this one is for my childhood lurve !!!
some matchbox style art :)


Are you wearing a crown of flowers
 on your head today ???
well if not...go...wear it now

 and let its roots reach your heart :)
