Waterfront Launches Mural Competition In Dubai

Aug 28,2018

The Waterfront Market has announced an exciting opportunity for all UAE based artists. The ''Waterfront mural painting competition'' is part of the organizations community-focused initiative that celebrates the diversity and exceptional progress of the UAE by supporting the growing local art scene. The top 10 entries will be displayed at a gallery and the winning entry will receive Dh30,000.

The Waterfront Market was built to carry forward the legacy of Dubai's old Deira Fish Market, and artists are required to capture the essence of the market by keeping in mind Dubai’s past.

Judges will look for artwork that depicts the vibrant community of the UAE and its transformation over the years. Creativity, uniqueness, visual impact and balance will also affect their decision.

Finalists will be shortlisted by a committee before a winner is picked. Once selected, the winning artist will have the opportunity to paint their artwork on the main wall of the waterfront market that measures 8.5metres in length and 4.5metres in height.

Those interested must send an artist bio, copy of two previously completed works and a maximum of three artwork samples, each accompanied by an artist’s statement and medium to murals@waterfrontmarket.ae. Submission deadline is September 16.
