“As a young mother who is also an Artist it was very natural for me to place a paint brush in Tara’s hands rather than an Ipad, we started painting together, experimenting with colors, shapes and creating artworks out of chaos. When w2w posted about the event, I sent across a painting that was done by Tara and myself; I was thrilled that they wanted to exhibit the Artwork and said that art is not defined by age; it goes to show that this exhibition is “Lit says Kim Oberoi (Tara’s mom)

The concept for “Get Lit” is inspired by “Millennials” a generation who are defined by technology and often labeled as lazy and unfocused. This show aims to break those stereotypes and shed light on their creative & enterprising side, by offering a platform for them to voice their opinions through art. The art works reflect the millennial ability to constantly re create, innovate and frequently push boundaries of “norm”. “Get Lit” celebrates the misfits, the globetrotters, the explorers, the creators, the eco warriors and the change makers of the community. The show is open to the public, starting on 20th till 28th of June at Gallery 76 in Dubai International Art Centre.

“Self Discovery” a solo art exhibition by Ragini Dewan

Standard

PHOTO-2018-06-09-12-39-40.jpg 

The Exhibition opens on 18th of June till 2nd of July at Noon Hotel Apartments in Al Barsha

On 18th of June the Noon Hotel Apartments in Al Barsha will inaugurate the Solo Art Exhibition by Ragini Dewan from 7:00pm till 10pm the exhibition will continue till 2nd of July.  Ragini is a graduate from the National Institute of Design, one of Asia’s most prestigious schools in India; she has been based in the UAE since 1977. As an Artist, she is drawn towards the abstract world of art. She is exceptionally multifaceted and experiments in a variety of art media, using glass, mono-print, acrylics and ceramics to showcase her talent. One of Raginis’ trademarks, however, is her heavily textured art, which helps in portraying an almost 3-D effect. She refuses to stick to one style or medium when working on a piece. Instead, her acrylics and mono-prints rendezvous on canvas and paper just like the colors that she uses to brighten up her glass sculptures.

Ragini Dewan explains, As an artist, I find myself constantly growing and evolving and my artworks reflect my varied style and emotions. I am not afraid to use bold colors to express my constant state of change and self discovery; for me to create is to just “Be”.

The Art exhibition opens to the public on 18th of June at 7:00pm till 10:00pm at Noon Hotel Apartment in Al Barsha, the show will run till 2nd of July 2018.
