World Art Dubai Honours Industry's Finest

World Art Dubai Honours Industry's Finest

The World Art Dubai Awards again raised the profile of the show’s most talented, selecting artists, galleries and artwork that were creating a buzz amongst visitors at this year’s show. Taking the top accolade, award winners had to excel in regards to concept, execution and skill, with the gallery selection also taking into consideration presentation and curation of the work, and the emerging prize looking to see a fresh perspective on art.

The winners were unanimously selected by World Art Dubai’s expert curators, Batool Jafri, the ‘Emirates Woman of the Year 2018’; Samar Kamel, an Egyptian artist, curator and author; and Petra Kaltenbach, a fine artist, videographer and graphic designer.
