The designs of six Emirati artists have won the Abu Dhabi Art Wings Project competition organised by TCA Abu Dhabi. The Project is part of the wider Abu Dhabi Art Design Program and has received a great response seen through a multitude of submissions from all over the country to create new concepts featuring the Abu Dhabi Art ‘wing’ logo.
Winners for this year’s Wings Project are Eman Al Raesi, Kaltham Mohamed Al Marzooqi, Khalid Mahmood, Mariam Al Shamsi, Maryam AbdulRazaq Al Fahim, and Rahma Fadhel Al Mehairbi. Their designs will be on display in Artyfact, the merchandise space in Manarat Al-Saadiyat and across the Abu Dhabi Art showcasing printed materials, advertising and other related collateral.
“The encouragement that comes from first applying for the Wings Project is then escalated when the winning designs are presented to the visiting audiences during Abu Dhabi Art. With their designs now being exhibited on a global platform these Emirati artists are presented with a unique opportunity to share their creativity and ideas with this international art community, as well as continuing to enhance Abu Dhabi as the cultural destination it is,” says Hind Khouri, Marketing Manager, TCA Abu Dhabi.
