  • “It’s amazing! The show is especially good for my kids, as they are interested in these kind of art fairs. They have started to paint themselves, so I wanted to bring them over here to check out other artists and learn new techniques and styles they could incorporate into their own works.”
    Ahmad Omari, Pakistani
  • “It’s my first time at World Art Dubai and I sold from the very first day! People love it because it’s affordable art. A lot of people say that art is expensive but this fair puts it within anyone’s reach and that’s what the show communicates!”
