Swiss Art Gate UAE together with Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi and under the patronage of the Embassy of Switzerland to the United Arab Emirates, presents “Pearls of Abu Dhabi” an ‘artist in residence’ program and exhibition by renowned Swiss illustrator and artist, Reynald Aubert.
Between 3rd – 18th March Reynald Aubert can be seen at various locations in Abu Dhabi, sitting somewhere close to an iconic building and simply capturing the architecture with ink pen on an A-3 paper. Aubert has travelled the world and he is very enthusiastic about the Abu Dhabi project, where he spends two weeks with sketching iconic buildings.
The opening reception of the exhibition will be on Tuesday, 22 March 2016, 7 – 9 pm at the Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, in presence of the street sketch artist.
The exhibition ‘Pearls of Abu Dhabi’ shows more than twenty drawings of the artworks influenced from the artist’s extensive journey experiences during his artist in residence program in Abu Dhabi. The result is a series of sketches representing most iconic architectural designs, including many that have been inspired by Abu Dhabi and its storied history.
