Artweek photo diary

It's been a busy couple of weeks in the UAE's arts scene, and it seems next year Dubai's Art Week may have to rename as Art Fortnight or Art month! It all started with the Sharjah Biennial 11, closely followed by Sikka Art Fair, then Design Days Dubai, and finally Art Dubai. In addition the UAE's art galleries presented an impressive line up of exhibitions, awards and events. With so much to see and talk about here's Capsule Arts visual diary of Art Week.

Drawdeck.com

Launching this week Drawdeck is an online platform to share your drawings, from illustrations, to graphic design, to doodles - it's open to all and aimed at the wider creative community. At Capsule Arts we think it's a great way for local artists to keep a catalogue of their drawings, create a following, and start a dialogue about their work. With fantastic potential to provide a much needed space for critique, we wish them the best of luck and encourage artists to use it as a tool to get their work seen. Pay them a visit at www.drawdeck.com and keep an eye on their social media. We spotted this on facebook this week about an upcoming project this March for Dubai's artists.
