Project Art’s first show in 2022 is being held with the aim of empowering local female artists and women in general with a special focus on International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8. The interactive initiative designed to provide Dubai’s best artists a free space to exhibit their work also aims to energise Dubai’s creative community. The popular three-week residency is being hosted at Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens, until March 11 and will feature a female-focused exhibition from French artist Leiana.

“I live by colours, movement, and texture and always seek the wow effect in my pieces,” Leiana, who is showcasing a selection of female-inspired artwork from her “Les Françaises” collection, said. “The opportunity to have my work exhibited at Zabeel House is a dream come true and even more so as part of International Women’s Day celebrations. Painting for me is an escape from the stresses of modern life; a simple way to relax. I look forward to sharing that process with visitors.”

The artist, who moved to Dubai six years ago and started painting as a hobby, will lead a live painting experience on February 21 at 10am in the eclectic hotel’s lobby. Attendees will have the opportunity to get to know her better, observe her technique, ask questions and learn a little more about her journey from France to the funkiest neighbourhood hangout in Dubai. Leiana, who is known for her modern pieces of art with vivid pops, is making her completed work available for purchase, in addition to all her other pieces.

“Project Art is all about empowerment, so the opportunity to show our support to the burgeoning art community while also celebrating International Women’s Day feels like the perfect moment to bring back what proved a very popular initiative when we launched last year,” Marcus Sutton, General Manager at Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens, said. “Leiana’s work is incredibly inspiring and with “Les Françaises” focusing on strong, independent women, I’m sure her residency will motivate many others to pursue their passion.”

Local artists keen to be involved in future Project Art initiatives can register their interest by contacting Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens on 04 519 1111.
