Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates to wow guests with an art exhibition by contemporary crystal artist Natalie in commemoration of Sheikh Zayed’s year.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, February 2018: In celebration of 100 years since the birth of HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan, founding father of the UAE, Kempinski Mall of the Emirates has joined forces with budding artist, Natalie Dagestani. Natalie will bring her series of five symbolic artworks to Aspen, the luxurious lobby lounge of the five-star property in the heart of Dubai, on 24th February – 10th March.

In the collection, the five pieces of art include:

  • HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
  • Story Of A Leader
  • Year of Zayed Through Five Senses
  • Sheikh Z
  • Portrait of His Highness Sheikh Zayed

Through her artwork, Natalie has combined her passion of painting with her expertly perfected crystallization talents, to create unique and eye-catching portraits and pieces of art. Using Swarovski crystals, pearls, glitter and various mixed media, she pays tribute to HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan commending his achievements in making the UAE what it is today.

Commenting on her display, Natalie Dagestani stated “as quoted by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - To be creative is to add something new to life as opposed to being a part of it.” She continued with “By creating these pieces of art, I am adding something new into existence for many to view and enjoy as well as physically leaving my own mark of respect to an incredible person and leader in the way I know best. I am creatively displaying my gratitude and fascination towards Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan through these artworks and I hope the public will enjoy them too."

Guests are encouraged to admire Natalie’s beautiful creations over a delicious coffee stenciled with HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan’s face, another initiative from Kempinski Mall of the Emirates to show its appreciation of the great leader as we celebrate 100 years since his birth.

Aspen is open daily from 07.00am – 19.00pm and reservations can be made by phoning +971 4 409 5999.
