LOVEISM

“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.”
― Banksy, Wall and Piece.

So I stumbled upon Street Art Gallery Dubai due to absolute boredom in Summer. You know, when it is 45 Degrees here and you cannot possible go have coffee in Dubai Mall again?! (not even talking about shopping ’cause you’ve blown your month’s budget – out of BOREDOM) An hour later I walked out in awe, inspired and with THIS baby by Erni Vales:

Street Art Dubai, the first Street Art Gallery in Dubai dedicated to Street Art, Graffiti, Urban, Pop Art was only founded in 2013 – so all fresh and Dubai is only just starting to find out about Street Art and that not everything is Graffiti!

And I have been back since….:

So to cut a long lovestory short, I went with my friend Marie to see lovely Yelena at the Gallery – we are looking for a venue for an upcoming exciting fashion event (stay tuned). And who did we meet there? Hec1, who was hanging out to set up his exhibition “LOVEISM in Dubai”!

Those who are not familiar with Hec1, here is a brief bio of his: http://streetartdubai.ae/w/artists/3017-2/

And here some of the artwork we came, saw and conquered 🙂

The real stuff!

 

So head down there for the official opening tonight!

The exhibition is on for a month. And make sure to check back to new and exciting exhibitions every couple of weeks.
