Leading contemporary art gallery, Artspace will feature a premier collection of art at this year’s Abu Dhabi Art Fair. The showcase will include a signature booth solely dedicated to exhibiting the works of Sheikha Alyazia Nahyan Al Nahyan, as well as second stand showcasing pieces by master Egyptian artists, Farouk Hosny, Adam Henein, Adel El Siwi and Khaled Zaki.
Abu Dhabi Art presents artworks from several contemporary art and design galleries. The exhibition includes a vast spectrum of installations and large-scale sculptures. Artspace will proudly be participating for the second time this year. Founded in 2003, Artspace Dubai is dedicated to the promotion of contemporary Middle Eastern art and artists.

Managing Director Maliha Al-Tabari noted, “Art Abu Dhabi is an incredible event. It brings together some of the art world’s most renowned artists with new and emerging talent. It is a wonderful way to remind us all what a huge role art plays in culture and within our community. We are absolutely delighted to be a part of it again this year.”
In this year’s showcase, Artspace truly captures the essence of contemporary art. The gallery’s exceptional exhibit pieces are beautifully complex, diverse and inspirational as some works are a true reflection of Middle Eastern heritage and traditions with a modern approach. Farouk Hosny is well-known for his unique abstract style in art. Composed with exquisite balance, enigmatic imagery and a dynamic palette, Hosny´s paintings speak the language of the modern world. Sculptor Adam Henein’s pieces are greatly influenced by the Pharoanic wonders of his homeland as a child. He is considered to be one of the major sculptors of our time. Although known for his treatment of the human figure, Adel El Siwi’s latest works have been more narrative and iconic. Pure colors pierce the tonal elements, but are restrained by the somber Egyptian landscape marked by the monochromes of the desert and the grayness of Cairo. A versatile artist, Khaled Zaki’s passion for the ancient Egyptian and Mediterranean arts and his deep concern about the resurrection subject can be touched in the forms, techniques and colors of his sculptures.
