10 Aug Art of bridging cultures.
London-based conceptual art house Fortune Favours Art will be opening its doors soon for the UAE market, with the launch of its website featuring some of the world’s most sought after contemporary and street art.
Founded by British entrepreneur and art connoisseur Louis Wright, Fortune Favours Art, it is hoped, will offer the UAE market unprecedented access to some of the world’s best-known contemporary artists and a global platform for local Arab artists to showcase their work to global collectors. The brand is also planning its first physical exhibition in Dubai in Q4 of 2018.
The concept, originally developed by Wright in the UK in 2017, gives access, via the website fortunefavoursart.com, to Middle East residents interested in purchasing art from famous global artists as well as Middle Eastern contemporary and street artists.
The idea is to uncover a new generation of artists in the region, offering a platform to showcase local talent, globally and regionally. Each month, three artists will be featured: one established, one emerging and one from the region.
