Urban Art Fest

The cover or the feature image of this post answers the title.

Everyone’s just so fortunate that Al Ghurair Centre is showcasing this particular branch of art which essentially uncovers the artsy side of the young and the young once alike.

Al Ghurair Centre Street Art Connection or the #AGCStreetCon is one of the many lined-up “art and culture” activities in Dubai.

It aims to energize public spaces in order to make art accessible to the community. As for the artists, it will allow both local and international artists to showcase their talent and spark a conversation between them and the audience to interact and learn from.

It is always great to hit 2 birds with 1 stone. After shopping or the other way around, get yourself amused by the ramifications of the 20 participating local and international artists’ creative juices.

Miracoco by Architects of Air, The Side Wall and 3D Floor Art by Kobra, The Fillers by Depiktone, Stray by Angelo Aguilor, The Wall by Tarsila Schubert, the Creativity Corner by The Jam Jar, Neon Room by Matt Ryder, Fumes and Mold Workshops by The Brownmonkeys, Box Art among others, are what you can find in Al Ghurair Centre. Started last 23rd of April and runs till 2nd of May.

In case you haven’t been there yet, here’s some of my snaps to entice you.
