Street Nights DXB

It has been a dusty yet colourful and awesome weekend last 20th and 21st of February as I was able to attend Dubai’s largest street party in Al Quoz! Imagine closing one street to showcase DXB’s street culture.

In collaboration with the Dubai Food Festival, the streets of Al Quoz came alive with street art, music and delicious street-food. For two nights, lots of local and international artists performed and shared their talents which was attended by thousands of visitors. Yup, thousands of Dubai peeps chose to get out of the mall, braved the sandstorm and attended this event. Street Nights is a community project which aims to promote public art in Dubai.

Street art in UAE is emerging and growing rapidly like you can’t imagine.  International and local street artists like L7M, Bandi, Zomby, Weik, FWC were among others who shared and exhibited their talents during the event.The best part is the entrance was free and open to everyone – kids and adults!

So here’s a quick photo bomb of what happened during that crazy weekend.

Before they have broken the record, I had an awesome opportunity of seeing the “Rehlatna” process first hand. It was such a cool experience since I got a chance to see “the journey” of how they did the record breaking scroll.

Game of Thrones Inspired Greeting Card

One Saturday morning, I was strolling around Kinokuniya Bookstore in Dubai Mall and found some glittery silver pens. I instantly thought of an idea for a greeting card. Since I have a cousin abroad who’s celebrating his birthday soon, I have decided to make my idea into form and created a card. My cousin is a huge fan of Game of Thrones so I googled some nice GOT wallpapers.

I  first did the layout in illustrator and printed then using my silver pen, I drew the “Stark” emblem? or symbol? then added “Happy Name Day” to it since that’s the way you greet Happy Birthday, the Game of thrones way.
