Capsule Arts will feature unique work of 18 GCC artists; offers bespoke services to UAE residents and businesses
A new platform to buy art through a limited edition print collection and bespoke artist commissions has been launched in Dubai, supporting local artists throughout the GCC.
Capsule Arts, the brainchild of co-founders, curators and artistic entrepreneurs Deepa Bhatia and Rachael Brown, has collaborated with 18 artists from around the world, who all live, work and create art in the GCC, to launch a series of artwork for consumers and businesses to hang in their home or workplace.
Available to browse and purchase through the company’s online store, www.capsulearts.com, as well as at pop up exhibitions and events throughout the UAE, the featured works include celebrated creations from Emirati artists Khalid Mezaina, Mohammad Al Qassab and Nasir Nasrallah, Bahraini artist Perryhan El-Ashmawi and Jordanian Lama Khatib-Daniel.
Home-grown talent from the Middle East will sit alongside those from Australia, Canada, India, the UK and the USA, all of whom are influenced every day by their lives rooted in and around the UAE and Gulf. Prices range from AED300 to AED2,250, making the collection accessible to a wide demographic in the region.
The other artists represented in the collection are Andrew Field, Arcadia Blank, Emily Gordon, Fathima Mohuiddin, James Matthews, Jill Thomas Whatley, Julia Ibbini, Kate Toledo, Kathryn Ryan, Kathryn Wilson, Matthew Ryder, Nivedita Saha and Noush like Sploosh.
When working with artists on the limited edition print collection and bespoke art commissions, Capsule Arts takes its responsibility towards the artists seriously, respecting their intellectual property when proposing new concept drawings.
“Our varied portfolio of artists will cater to all tastes and budgets, from artist commissions and original artworks, to the limited edition prints which will add vibrancy and meaning to any home or office,” said Rachael Brown, co-founder of Capsule Arts.
“Each artist has a unique, yet flexible style and each brings with them a fresh approach to art in the local market. Our range of prints allows those new to the art world an easy step into building their personal art collections without risking a significant financial undertaking.”
Deepa Bhatia, co-founder added, “Since our inception we have been providing bespoke art services for residential projects, hotels, hospitals, offices, restaurants and public spaces. Our team works directly with the project managers and we take the client through a step by step process from art selection to framing to installation.
“The designers and craftsmen we work with are also able to provide free standing and wall sculptures, accessories and design objects, which we know is a service not readily available in the UAE.”
With a combined experience in the international art scene of more than 18 years, Bhatia and Brown are truly passionate about working with artists and creating a platform that enables artists to sustain a professional career in the creative industry.
Established in October 2012, Capsule Arts is located in the heart of Al Quoz, Dubai. Their office is adjacent to a large 584sqm studio space which will be used to host art exhibitions, special events and installations, supported by partner company Lobo & Listone.
