DPICT - Illustration exhibition tomorrow!

Dpict features artworks by 14 talented illustrators living and working in Dubai.
Illustrators' work is everywhere - children's books, labels, logos, the media, but we don't nearly often enough acknowledge their talent or showcase their work exclusively.

At Dpict you will see and have a chance to buy their own personal artworks and appreciate the hidden talent living in this city.

We hope to see you at the opening where you willl get to meet the minds behind the world of illustration and watch them draw live.

See you there!

Illustration may be the form of art that the majority of us are most familiar with. Many of our favourite children’s books are fondly remembered as much for the pictures as the words within them. We also see illustrations every day; in newspapers, on posters, even in instruction booklets. DPICT aims to bring a greater appreciation of this enduring and timeless discipline, through an exhibition that acknowledges and celebrates the talent of the many illustrators in the UAE.

Illustration brings words to life through visual representation, depicting reality in a recognisable form whilst delivering a clear and strong message. DPICT will explore this concept and will help to create a network among illustrators as they view each other’s work and initiate a dialogue about their common passion.
