Noor Bank Exhibits Works of Renowned Emirati Artist, Faisal Abdulqader
Dubai-UAE: 23 October 2018 – Noor Art, an initiative by Noor Wealth driven by its passion for promoting art from the UAE across the globe, this week inaugurated the solo exhibition of acclaimed Emirati artist Faisal Abdulqader Al Bastaki.
Scheduled to run until 15 November, the exhibition showcases elements of the UAE culture, including the country’s distinctive landmarks and unique diversity. Each artwork is an expression of the artist’s personal thoughts and draws inspiration from various parts of the country.
Noor Art was launched earlier this year along with the launch of Noor Wealth – the new premium wealth management proposition designed to meet the needs of high net worth individuals (HNWIs). The Noor Art Gallery at Noor Bank’s Sheikh Zayed Road Branch and Dubai Mall branch has also previously hosted exhibitions on Digital Art and Calligraphy paintings and will continue to host exhibitions of other prominent artists’ work throughout the year. These exhibitions are well-received by Noor Wealth clients who appreciate the fact that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these paintings goes to charity.
Date: 15 October to 15 November 2018
Time: Sat-Thu from 8:30am to 3:30pm
Venue: Noor Art Gallery, Noor Bank, Sheikh Zayed Road Branch
About Faisal Abdulqader
Faisal Abdulqader is a self-taught artist who fell in love with art in his childhood and nurtured this hobby by reading art-related books and meeting with and learning from different artists across the globe as well as visiting art museums. His career and working in the financial sector for 30 years resulted in an unwanted distance from his favourite hobby. He slowly began to devote a few hours per day to practice and improve his skill. The majority of Faisal’s paintings are realistic depictions of the rich heritage and culture of the UAE, which he hopes to preserve in his art, working mainly in oil paint. Faisal has participated in numerous regional exhibitions, national events, and conferences.
