We shall walk together on the path of life, for all things are part of the universe and relate to each other to form one whole unity.
Funun Arts and Novotel World trade centre organized an art exhibition titled “The Walk of Life” where 30 artists from different nationalities participated, showcasing their artworks and photographs presenting their thoughts about the walk of life. The exhibition was full of diverse art forms like abstract, contemporary, mixed media, and pictures; all documents were beautifully presented. It was a pleasant sight for the eyes of the viewer.
As always, Funun Arts added feathers to enhance the beauty of the event by doing the live painting by collaborating with an organization “4get me not”. This is an organization serving senior citizens and Alzheimer’s patients. Participating artists joined senior citizens and created the artwork, which became part of the ongoing art exhibition.
The event started with melodious live music played by Dr Qais Salman, one of the participating artists. The music created a very relaxing atmosphere which was enjoyed by everyone, especially the senior citizens who were entirely in the flow and couldn’t resist dancing.
The art exhibition was inaugurated in the presence of Mr Ahmed Al Awadhi, legendary artist and businessman, Mr Ismaeil Al Hammadi, CEO of ACE Carpets, Mrs Reena Mahajan, Founder of Indian Women in Dubai; besides them were great artists like Mr Anjani Prakash Laitu, Mr Atul Panse and Mr Nazar Haidiri.
Shiba Khan, artist and Founder of Funun Arts, said: Creating every art event is always a new challenge because we don’t want to end up with just an art exhibition. We want to create something different with new concepts, new ideas and a new message. We want when people visit our exhibition, they should experience something new and go with awareness. Even for artists, this works like brainstorming and opens a creative window. To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life, we must constantly strive to acquire muscular, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the best of our ability. In this exhibition my two artworks from the SHIFARA collection are exhibited, which reflect my perspective on my walk of life.
Desiree O. Vlekken, the founder of 4Get me Not, said:” This is one of the best opportunities for senior citizens because they are completely involved into it. Colors have that therapeutic power which gives relaxation and brings happiness. And this is something that we can experience on the faces of everyone, they all are so happy, and this is the best thing which we want to achieve.
Farah Khan, the co-founder and creative designer of Funun Arts, said: We believe that Art is the best way to express. There are so many different walks of life, so many personalities in the world. And no longer do you have to adopt the lifestyle of others; you can truly be yourself. Be creative and be unique. We are happy to serve society and take art to another level with our events. We always thank our Artists, supporters, media, and friends. This event was made special by senior citizens. It was terrific to see smiles on their faces and to see how these wonderful souls were enjoying to the live painting session.
Ahmed Al Awadhi said that artists are the people with the purest souls and hearts filled with love and emotions. This was well experienced during their interaction while the live painting session. I am so glad to be a part of Funun Arts event as they come up with something unique and amazing every time.
Mrs Reena Mahajan said: This is my first event with Funun Arts, and I am thrilled to collaborate with them. This event is very well organized with a beautiful thought behind it. I am looking forward to working together with them in the future.
Ismaeil Al Hammadi, CEO of ACE carpet, said: We can experience such beautiful artworks by all the artists. It is a lovely thought to bring artists and people from different walks of life together on one platform. It creates a feeling of love and harmony.
Shiba Khan and Farah Khan, along with the 30 participating artists, want to convey the message to society:
“Our dream is to continue to be an artist who gets to be different individuals from different walks of life. We all are different and have different stories to tell but what is common in us is we all are creative and want to create the world with love, peace and harmony”.
