ART at ARTE in April – meet Carl March

Carl March, born 1959, studied at Solihull College. Followed by two intensive years study and work with artist and master printmaker Oliviero Masi in Milan, Italy. His work is characterized by strong drawing and design elements. He likes to experiment with soft pencils, bamboo pens, and brushes.

ART at ARTE in April – Gail Reid

I am Gail Reid – British artist. I love drawing and painting birds, animals, people, and pretty much anything that stays still. I am particularly inspired by camels and flamingos, and spend many happy hours sketching on a local camel farm, and at Ras Al Khor flamingo sanctuary. Arte is a lovely friendly environment, I really enjoy exhibiting there, amongst the many vendors of original handmade arts and crafts. Please find me gailreidartist on Instagram, Facebook, and my website #wemakewhatwesell

ART at ARTE in April – Usama

Usama is a founding member of ARTE. Originally from Sudan, Usama has been living in Abu Dhabi for 15 years. With a B.A. in Fine Arts, Usama is greatly inspired by Monet and other impressionist styled artworks. His particular characteristic technique is applying oil paint in impasto style with a palette knife. The vibrancy and movement achieved in his works can be contributed to the fact that Usama loves to paint outdoors as it makes him “feel free’ and he enjoys painting “difficult, different scenes”. Up close, his works can be experienced as colourful abstracts, but its with stepping back a few steps when one can appreciate the scenes unfolding in front of you.‪#‎artemarket‬ ‪#‎wemakewhatwesell‬



ART at ARTE in April – Maruska Lebrun

Maruska Lebrun is a Dutch artist who enjoys working in different media such as watercolours, soft pastels, inks and acrylics. Most of her paintings reflect “the Arabian Heritage” theme that she has studied in great depth over the many years of her living in the UAE with her family. The beautiful sunsets, the play of shadow and light have always been a great source of inspiration for her. Her paintings have been presented at numerous regional and international exhibitions and she has won several regional awards for her art work. She has been a regular art vendor at ARTE since 2006. #ARTEUAE #wemakewhatwesell

ART at ARTE in April – Eleni

I am Eleni Dalko. I was born in the real world. I live in the dream world. I paint, I draw, I make collages and I sculpt to balance the opposite inside me. I don’t limit myself to one medium, style or concept. Picasso’s work and the surrealism movement my main influences. I want to meet spontaneous artists, dream collectors, chaos architects, quantum theorists and anyone with a crazy idea who is lunatic enough to follow it through! I love to declare: ‘I am nothing and I am everything’. By Eleni’s Stuff ‪#‎artemarket‬‪#‎wemakewhatwesell‬


ART at ARTE in April by Andy Anderson

I am Andy Anderson. I’ve been an avid photographer for 35 years and have been framing photography for almost as long. What I learned way back when is that not many pretty pictures look very good on the wall. My goal is to create a piece of PhotoArt that does. I like a style that I call photographic impressionism. All my photos are real images – no Photoshop creations. I use different techniques to define the subject including long zoom, a camera function that isolates a particular color with all others going gray, and HDR (High Dynamic Range) fusion software. I believe that great piece of PhotoArt tells a little story and/or leaves you feeling good without getting old and tired.#wemakewhatwesell #arteuae Find me at ARTE on Friday 8th April from 11am to 6pm.


ART at ARTE in April -Anjana Bose

I am Anjana Bose of I-Craft. I am neither an artist nor a designer. I depend of my imagination to explore, experiment and create. My artwork takes inspiration from the things around me and experiences I have. I started I-Craft with the hope to introduce a piece of art in everyday life; to make art usable / wearable and definitely affordable. I use a number of surfaces and medium like acrylics, charcoal pencil etc. This time, I am at ARTE with my paintings and looking forward to take a small step closer to my dream.#artemarket #wemakewhatwesell
