Dubai Street Museum
Mural at The Gate at DIFC
Brand Dubai and DIFC celebrated the UAE’s 46th National Day and the ‘Year of Zayed’ by unveiling two artistic images of the Father of the Nation, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on the façade of the Gate Building. Working with an Emirati artist to design these unique 50 x 20-meter images, Emirati artist Maitha Demithan hopes to inspire the new leadership to follow in the footsteps of the Founding Fathers who changed the history of the UAE.
Dubai Metro Murals
Brand Dubai challenges South American artists, Peruvian Daniel Cortez and Dominican-born, Miami-based artist ‘Evoka1’ (also known as Elio Mercado) to work their magic on a unique canvas. Murals on the bridge pillars of Dubai Metro on Sheikh Zayed Road, between the Dubai Financial Centre and Emirates Tower celebrate all that makes Dubai unique, inspirational and dynamic. In its third phase, these works of art infuse joy into the commuters’ journey.
With support from Dubai Municipality, Brand Dubai enters the fourth phase with art as part of the Jumeirah project. 14 artists along Jumeirah Road reveal how Dubai’s futuristic vision is as rich as its heritage. 22 art projects including murals on buildings stretching from Dubai Canal to the Burj Al Arab infuse fresh creative and artistic energy into the city’s neighborhood. Inspired by memories of those who’ve known and cherished Jumeirah, these murals capture the old and the current through visual storytelling. Dubai’s Street Museum project showcases artists from the UAE, the region and the world with a show of vibrant life.
Brand Dubai shines a spotlight on Jumeriah through a series of initiatives launched in 2018. In collaboration with RTA, Dubai Municipality, DTCM and Dubai Sports Council, we enrich this creative and cosmopolitan community while celebrating Dubai’s history and heritage.
Emirati, Arab and international artists create a series of artworks that turn Jumeriah’s public realm into an open museum for residents and tourists as they join in exciting events. This stunning beachfront neighborhood comes alive with a marathon, a swimming competition, a triathlon, competitions for children, a Yoga event, a beach football tournament, a traditional Dhow competition, boat races and a fabulous food festival
