The first skateboard art exhibition – FAKIE

May 14, 2010

Posted By Mamtu Manghnani

Being one of the first skateboard art exhibitions in the UAE, FAKIE, curated by Fn Designs, was indeed a commendable demonstration of artworks by thirty artists of different nationalities.

It did not only have the usual creative ignite as many other Fn Designs events such as SKETCH, but in fact much more and broke all barriers in being a networking place of serious artists and art enthusiasts.

The list of participating artists include: List of participating artist : Arya Hawker, Darwin Guevarra, Diya Ajit (Chroma), Emma Pinkerton, Evan Collission, Eyan Lomuntad, Faouzi Khilifi (ElSeed, Fathima Mohideen, Fatima bin Saifan, Hind Mazeina, Janet Bellotto, Joseph Manata (Pinkblot), Joshua Watts, Khalid Mazeina, Kris Balerite (Dozign), Lateefa bint Maktoum AlMaktoum, Mark Ganzon (Cloud88), Mellissa Guevarra, Mohammed Al Shaibani, Nargis Ahsan, Nivedita Saha, Petra Mattar, Rashid Al Mulla, Renata Giovannoni, Robert James Gibbs, Rollan Rodriguez (Evildogboy), Salama Naasib, Sarah Lahti, Vivek Premchandran (UBIK), Wafa Hasher AlMaktoum (Jawa).

The only glitch was finding the place Shelter, which like most other Dubai – based art galleries is based in AL Quoz, but one can easily miss it, if not a smart driver. But then again, with the crowd outside and a map on the Shelter Dubai website, spotting the location is a mere hiccup.

All in all, FAKIE is an eminent display and well curated show by Wafa Hasher Al Maktoum, Founder and Director of Fn Designs – clearly depicting the eclectic mix of nationalities ingrained within the UAE society and a proof of the budding vibrant art culture.
