The partnership promotes women empowerment.
From mouth-watering Peruvian cuisine, superbly crafted mixed drinks and some of best parties to be thrown in the capital, COYA Abu Dhabi has many things to love.
But the kaleidoscopic venue on Al Maryah Island is adding another feather to its burgeoning cap with the showcasing of Emirati artist Maha Al Mazrouei’s latest collection Elements.
Following a successful exhibition at COYA Dubai in 2021, that latest partnership between the brand and Al Mazrouei, running until the end of June, highlights the efforts to promote women empowerment and supporting local creative talent from across the region.
Specialising in oil canvas paintings, Al Mazrouei explores strands of abstract expressionism to reach the minds and souls of her audience.
Inspired by nature, she aims to translate the hidden beauty around her into moving works of art. To her, art is a place where viewers can experiment and experience different emotions, and her work is inspired by iconic abstract painters such as Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.
Al Mazrouei believes that “creativity and meditation go hand in hand to create art that will make a difference to the viewer”.
An alumnus of Northwest College of Art US and the Royal Academy of Arts UK, Al Mazrouei’s works have been displayed at famous venues such as the Burj Al Arab Hotel, Jumeirah Vitavelli Maldives and in some of Dubai International Airport’s most exclusive lounges.
In 1996, one of her paintings was also selected to be used on a national stamp for the UAE postal authorities.
