Dubai’s architectural landmark, the Burj Al Arab, commissioned the British abstract artist Louise Duggan to create nine works of art in golden tones to emulate the hotel’s aesthetic. Around 1,790sqm of 24 carat gold leaf was used to embellish Burj Al Arab’s interior and 10 million mosaic tiles in shades of azure and gold line the two pools at The Terrace. One of Duggan’s most impressive works can be found in the VIP lounge, a large canvas dripping with lines of yellow, red, blue, green and gold paint.
