Local firm Capsule Arts has brought together eighteen artists for a showcase of their unique work during the opening of its new studio on September 5.

The 584 sq m space and associated website will provide a new platform for both local and international artists who live, work and create art in the GCC, to sell their limited-edition creations.

Capsule Arts has been providing bespoke art services for residential and corporate projects since its launch in October 2012 and is planning on taking its expertise to the road with a line-up of pop-up exhibitions and events that will take place throughout the UAE.

The displayed work will include creations from Emirati artists Khalid Mezaina, Mohammad Al Qassab and Nasir Nasrallah, Bahraini artist Perryhan El-Ashmawi and Jordanian Lama Khatib-Daniel.

Prices will range from $82 to $613, making the collection accessible to a wide demographic in the region.

Capsule Arts co-founder Rachael Brown said: “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”.

The studio will be located in the heart of Al Quoz and will be used to host art exhibitions, special events and installations.
