Dubai, 4 September 2016: Artists from around the Middle East will be exhibiting their work at Jumeirah Creekside Hotel from 1 to 29 September 2016. The exhibition “Art, the Language of Colours,” by Lamiatos Gallery is set to showcase the diversity of the Lamiatos Gallery collection which comprises work by seven artists from Syria, Jordan and Iraq.
Founded in 2015, Lamiatos Gallery is an international art gallery and a member of the MAG Group. Its main mission is to promote art as a universal language that can diminish the differences between nations and foster the cultural mutual language and provide art advisory for collectors.
Artists include Syrian Ahmed Kleige who has previously participated in solo and group exhibitions in Lebanon at UNESCO Palace, the American University of Beirut and Sursock Museum.
Srour Alwani also from Syria, a highly appreciated artist among the Gulf Region art collectors.
Dr. Eyad Al Masri from Jordan who has held 19 solo exhibitions across the Middle East and Europe.
Sattar Kawoosh, from Iraq, who has developed his own figurative, expressionist style (pictured) working with ranges of colours and experimenting with non-standard formats.
Work will also be on display from three more Syrians including Zuhair Hassib, Inayat Attar and Shaher Alzgair. The exhibition is the latest in a series of partnerships that Jumeirah Creekside Hotel has formed with local and international artists.
The hotel is home to a specially commissioned art collection which connects the property to the region’s vibrant art and cultural heritage. A selection of Middle Eastern contemporary art is playfully arranged throughout the hotel, enabling guests to discover different sculptures and paintings through a series of chance encounters. Comprising 482 works by 51 contemporary artists, the exhibition also includes videos, limited edition series and mixed media works. Guests who stay at the property are encouraged to explore the hotel’s collection and join one of the ‘art tours,’ which can be arranged through the concierge.
