Fortune Favours Art was founded by Louis Wright in 2017 with the intention of becoming the worlds foremost conceptual art house representing western, arabic and contemporary street art. Having already built a firm foothold in the United Kingdom, Fortune Favours Art are now bringing their concept to the UAE.
During its development both Fortune Favours Art and its pioneer Louis Wright have continuously pushed to provide some of the UK’s biggest businesses, collectors and investors in fine art with the most suitable recommendations based entirely on the individual wants and needs of each and every client. This attention to detail and meticulous understanding of our clients requirements have allowed us to build and develop long term relationships across the art world. Through these relationships we have access to some of the UK’s most prominent artists and studios and we have had significant involvement in both solo and joint shows. Most recently was our own show “Threeat43” Which was hosted by 43 Brook Street, in the heart of London’s Mayfair. Below is a brief summary and some videos taken at the show itself.
Fortune Favours Art has a clearly defined aim of bridging the gap between both Western and Arabic art. We aim to create a synergy between these two art cultures, whilst educating and developing within both markets. We believe that there is still massive education required in order for this to fully take effect and therefore we plan on implementing this via our Dubai and UK exhibitions, public talks, radio shows, podcasts and TV interviews as well as constant updates and features via our unique online portal. We will also have exclusive online print releases with emerging, established and Arabic artists collaborating together.
As a global brand FF already represents numerous emerging, established and Arabic artists that will constantly be promoted, projected and developed as our brand grows. We also have unprecedented access to some of the biggest names in both contemporary and street art such as, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Banksy, Richard Hambleton, Stik, Harland Miller, KAWS, Damian Hirst and Daze amongst many other huge and influential names in art history.
In order for us to reach our ongoing long term goal, Fortune Favours Art will continuously be working with art centres, schools, universities, museums and affliated charities around the world.
Fortune Favours Art will continue with its on going, long term goal of bringing the cultures of both Arabic and western art together through its numerous channels and outlets and by doing so we are confident that within the next decade we will be globally recognised for being the pioneers in the development of the Arabic/western street and contemporary art market.
We work with a huge range of western, arabic, contemporary and street artists. Below are some examples of artists you can expect to see featured at Fortune Favours.
