Following his award-winning artwork that was dubbed as the world’s largest painting on canvas, Sacha Jafri is continuing his Humanitarian Journey by launching a collection of artworks on the Burj Al Arab helipad – a first of its kind concept that reconnects people with heritage and culture through the celebration of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.
In a bespoke exhibition in collaboration with art visionary Marcus Schaefer, Jafri’s paintings (30 oil and acrylic original masterpieces) will be on display in a custom built 12-meter-by-12-meter labyrinth gallery, titled ‘The Art Maze’.
Depicting some of the world’s most impressive heritage sites, the artworks come right on time as it celebrates the UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites’ 50th anniversary.
“In a world where the metaverse is becoming more of a reality, and where online and physical living is fully integrated, this project is about reconnecting Humanity to the beauty that surrounds us, within our natural world, by re-establishing links with our heritage and cultural history,” explains the artist. “The launch of the ‘The Art Maze’ on the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Helipad will truly be a first-of-its-kind concept where art meets architecture and technology, and we can’t wait to share it with the rest of the world.”
After being showcased in Dubai, the launch of ‘The Art Maze’ will commence on a global tour from 2022 and 2023 and in line with the structure of the maze, the world tour aims will return to the UAE and travel to Abu Dhabi for its final show.
‘The Art Maze’ will not only celebrate UNESCO World Heritage Sites’ 50th anniversary and its outstanding universal values, but Jafri’s artworks aim to reconnect society with the cultural history and beauty of our planet’s most protected sites through Education, Science, and Culture.
