Nasdaq Dubai has announced that it has joined forces with the Opera Gallery Dubai for an art showcase collaboration.
Nasdaq Dubai recently launched its own artist programme, allowing talents in the region to display their work in Nasdaq Dubai’s premises in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
Russian Calligraffiti artist, Pokras Lampas is the first of four artists, featured in the 12 month period partnership between the two entities. His newest artwork is on display in Nasdaq Dubai’s premises from 13 March – 13 June.
As a contemporary art gallery engaged with established and emerging artists from across the globe, we are honoured to collaborate with Nasdaq Dubai. Showcasing select pieces and artists that have the ability to unite people across the world through an appreciation for creative talent is what we strive to do as a gallery. Prior to working with Opera Gallery, I worked in private banking, where I used to connect with clients over something we both shared an appreciation for – art, so this collaboration between the gallery and the finance world is a natural fit but also a bit nostalgic for me.’ said Sylvain Gaillard, Director, Opera Gallery Dubai.
Our first featured artist, Pokras Lampas is near and dear to me, not only because Opera Gallery Dubai discovered him, but because of his immense talent and ability to combine multiple scripts to create his own style. His work resonates with the region from the Arabic script inspiration and is also universally well received given its visual dynamics and it is on-trend with popular art culture, so it made sense to start with him,’ continued Gaillard.
