Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO) and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).has announced a new initiative titled 'The Dubai Metro Murals Project' a creative endeavour that aims to transform Dubai into an open-air museum celebrating art, creativity and aesthetic excellence.
Two international artists, Peruvian Daniel Cortez and Dominican-born, Miami-based artist ‘Evoca1’ also known as Elio Mercado, will paint murals on bridge pillars of the Dubai Metro on Shaikh Zayed Road between the Dubai International Financial Centre and Emirates Towers stations. The themes of the murals have been chosen to inspire creativity and spread happiness while also reflecting Dubai’s character, vision and future aspirations.
Under the agreement, the two organisations will establish strategic cooperation to implement public art projects aimed at enhancing the city’s aesthetic environment. The beautification projects will cover bridges, tunnels, walking tracks, bus stops and other public facilities and public places around Dubai.
