Cultural Connection

Renowned artist to headline ME Dubai Expo in Dubai

DUBAI, June 4, 2024

ME Dubai has invited visitors to embark on a journey that connects art, nature and social responsibility, as its latest exhibition gets underway from June 6 to July 31. Featuring a renowned artist, the expo is set to be a cultural amalgamation and storytelling through the lens of visual art.

Artist ChefBurger will headline Cultural Connection exhibition that will portray his ‘Journey Through the Arts: From Tokyo to Paris’ offering a unique opportunity to experience the convergence of diverse cultures through compelling portraits, French masterpieces, and a profound reverence for nature.

The exhibition will also display ChefBurger’s vivid new collection ‘TreesArt to the World’.

A self-made artist influenced by the world around him, Mano Gonzalez established his ChefBurger pseudonym with a mission: to make this world something more beautiful and meaningful through art.

Renowned as a self-taught artist inspired by artists and masters such as Alex Katz, Bernard Buffet, Andy Warhol, Basquiat, and Miró, ChefBurger draws inspiration from his life experiences, extensive travels, and the environments he has immersed himself in.

Presented against ME Dubai’s contemporary interior design by the late Zaha Hadid, ChefBurger’s art represents a juxtaposition of the artist’s feelings and aspirations through his digital images, paintings, and artistic flair.

Building upon ME Dubai’s sustainability and environmental stewardship, ChefBurger is set to unveil a new and deeply personal collection titled, ‘TreesArt to the World’, a series of eight breathtaking paintings, each meticulously capturing the delicate beauty and transient nature of trees.

The proceeds from the sale of these paintings will support ImpactHero, an inspiring start-up dedicated to tackling some of the world's most pressing environmental and social issues.

The funds raised from the sale will be used to plant trees in the Global South, focusing on regions where reforestation is critically needed.

The ‘TreesArt to the World’ series highlights the aesthetic splendour of nature while underscoring the essential connection between art, environment, and social responsibility and harnessing the drive to create positive change and address global challenges through creativity. – TradeArabia News Service
