Affordable Art Exhibition helps you take home more than your money’s worth

Affordable Art Exhibition in Abu Dhabi

Our capital plays host to some stellar art exhibitions throughout the year. Artists from around the region, and the world, regularly swing by to show off some of their best work.

These creative folk typically head for Abu Dhabi Art Hub (ADAH) which displays their labours of love. While you might need much more than loose change to buy pieces that catch your eye, if you happen to be in the right place at the right time, you can score fab works that are easy on your purse strings.

The Affordable Art Exhibition offers precisely that. Now in its 10th year, the showcase features original artwork from emerging artists from across the GCC. The added attraction is that everything exhibited costs between just Dhs250 and Dhs2,000.

When he is not involved in his day job overseeing architectural projects for a design consultancy firm in the UAE and GCC, Calimlim spends his time painting realistic and impressionism paintings. Oh, and he also worked for Walt Disney.

Remon Tawfik

Egyptian born Tawfik creates leather art. This mechanical engineer finds the material flexible, yet strong. He takes great inspiration from artisans in the Middle East and is one of the few artists in the region who creates the type of art that he specialises in.
