The illuminating “Tree of Life” by Shabir Ahmed Mir at Sikka Art Fair 2019

Tree of light

I had been following Shabir online and was quiet taken back by his posts from the Fahidi district a few days before Sikka Art Fair 2019 was about to kick off, he would be out in the middle of the night adorning a magistic tree with his handcrafted calligraphy letters, each adding a special glow to the already glorious tree and making the site infront of Majlis Gallery in Bastakiya truly stunning.


The Artist & Sculptor at work, creating the magical artwork that truly needs to be seen in person. No words or posts will do it justice, so please do visit this beautiful installation at Sikka Art Fair 2019 – it’ on till the 24th of March at Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.


“Tree of Light”  standing tall and beautifully is commissioned for Sikka Art Fair 2019, under Dubai Culture’s flagship event.
