Smelling coffee among oils in Abu Dhabi

For the first time in the history of the UAE, coffee paintings are being showcased at Radisson Blu Hotel, Abu Dhabi Yas Island during Ramadan. Various artists, local and international, will share their passion over the holy month for an informal celebration during the ongoing exhibition.

The coffee works of painter and poet, Archana RD King, also known as B'lu are on display for the first time. The talented young lady represents the voice of New India – one with age-old traditions and views on love with a firm grip on reality.
King uses oil on canvas to showcase the unbridled passion that comes with romantic love. The Parallex Art Fair has marked B’lu as an internationally recognizable talent last May.
Another artist, Desiree Rader, a Dubai based Dutch artist who has been living and exhibiting in the region since 1995 is part of the event. Influenced by the rich Arabian heritage from the Middle East, Desiree's work captures the dynamics in nature, people and animals, and is characterized by her unique vibrant and colourful painting style.
The Hamad centre is a newly opened non-profit organisation set-up by local businessmen who identified the need in Abu Dhabi for a good quality educational placement for children with autism and related disorders.
The Emirates Fine Arts Society is a non-profit association which helps promote art education and art appreciation among the public, in particular to national artists and conducts art workshops, seminars and lectures, in painting, sculpture, ceramics, graphics, photography and calligraphy. They are proud to announce their participation with 10 artists!
