Vertical blue'

The nature and the city, vegetation and architecture, flora and fauna urban are source of inspiration. These themes serve as a pretext to experiment forms of graphic network and colorful harmonies in human constructions associated with organic forms of plant or processing a simple vegetal view into a jungle fantasy. The choice of a single theme allow to forget about the subject in order to focus only on the painting itself. We are coming from the nature and so is our habitat. City and architecture are the nature, there is no opposition…

City lines and those of the vegetal world are multiples. Their combinations are infinites. Labyrinthine landscapes and urban structures are representing a globalized city. Before being a final image,  the canvas is an abstract thought where forms are only lines, materials and colors. Doors and windows are white squares on a blue background and the canvas does not express a clear idea but more of an impression: The city, cities, noise, people behind the colors, flows and networks, accumulation of activities that is giving stun sensations. Lines are crossing to end up lost in a ghost horizon. Perspectives lines are false and buildings incomplete, the city is an expanding universe going beyond the framework.

UAE murals, American artist in Abu Dhabi


Maria Hegedus is an American artist who has been living in Abu Dhabi, UAE since March 2013.

In the States, Maria painted murals for small businesses and residential clients as well. Upon moving to UAE, she decided to pursue not only a mural business, but to focus on fine art paintings and affordable prints as well.

She has completed several large-scale murals in Abu Dhabi ranging from residential villas, private schools, and most publicly – Dalma Mall, Mussafah. She has exhibited with Abu Dhabi Art Hub for American Art Month in July 2013, and displayed in ADNEC as well.

Murals will always be a passion, but canvases and prints make wonderful “souvenirs” for expats living here, or locals who are proud of their country’s culture.


Many expats purchase commissioned paintings and prints to send family at home, or to enjoy themselves as a memory of UAE that will last a lifetime! Maria enjoys using acrylic and adding touches of gold leaf to some paintings. Watercolor is another wonderful medium she enjoys and was truly her “first love” when it comes to art! She enjoys commissioned pieces and finds it very rewarding to work closely with a client to make their vision of art come to life! Some clients know EXACTLY what they want – others only offer a vague emotion or subject matter. Either way, she enjoys the challenge and some of the best-selling prints have come from inspiration by clients.

Prints begin at 200 dh, paintings begin at 1500 dh. Mural prices vary.

Shadow sculpture artists from Jordan


Maysoon Masalha
Bassam Al selawi

Bassam and his wife Maysoon Masalha we both studied Fine Art in there native Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and spent many years teaching art while also undertaking custom art projects and experimenting with different mediums, materials and techniques. Years spent instructing Palestinian refugee children was an important educational experience for Masalha and Al Selawi as there were terribly few material resources for creating art projects; innovation and creativity Were vital and through this experience he Sharpened their skills further.
Mashalha began to teach art at United Nations Schools for Palestinian Refugees. She considers this experience as being one of the most rewarding of her career in education as she was able to realize in a profound manner how art can have a positive influence on both her students and the community. Masalha then became an art supervisor in the UN Education Development Center where she managed a team of art teachers, staged workshops and organized public arts projects that included music as well as visual art. Joining Art Hub as Manager of Art Craft provides Masalha with the opportunity to expand her perpetual interest in encouraging others to discover the artist within while she continues to create her own artwork.


Al Selawi strongly believes that visual art is a way in which each person is able to express himself/herself in a particularly beautiful Way and that each human being has the right to practice art in spite Of the level Of talent. At Art Hub Al Selawi is able to share his experiences and understanding of art in various capacities and how working together our world can be a better place. As Manager of Applied Art, Al Selawi is responsible for the design and installations Of art commissions from decorative to practical such as furnishings.
Together with the Manager Of Art Craft, Maysoon Masalha also developed a distinctive technique for shadow sculpture and their work is On display in a dedicated gallery at Art Hub.
Both artists Bassam Al Selawi and Maysoon Masalha Distinguish themselves on the art scene by creating a new and distinct technique, merging between painting, sculpture and between shadow and light, and between reality and fantasy by creating a fourth dimension to the three-dimensional sculptures.

By using Arabic calligraphy in most of the sculptures, to reflect the shadow that paints an image on the wall. Same image which consists in the mind of the recipient when reading these phrases. They used different materials and new techniques for playing in the light and the shadow.
If you take a look at one of the shadow sculptures you can be forgiven for thinking they’re some kind of installation; a beautiful carving of Arabic calligraphy mounted on the wall, a silhouette painted behind it and some drama added through the use of a spotlight.


When you realize that the spotlight is in fact casting a shadow, a shadow you may have wrongly presumed was a painted silhouette, the true ingenuity shines through. Or perhaps it doesn’t, literally speaking. ‘There are shadow artists around the world who do installations to create shadow images, but not as a wall sculpture, this concept is new… it’s their own creation.

‘We can say that our sculptures are 4D sculptures; the fourth dimension being the shadow of the words. It does reflect the same image that is printed in our mind when we read the words. Those images range from Muslim worshippers to men riding horses or camels.
The other image perhaps printed in viewers’ minds is what the price tag looks like. Each of their sculptures sells for between Dhs 500 and Dhs 1700 if it’s one of their unlimited runs of moulds. However, they also produce customized unique pieces and limited edition runs in bronze or silver and gold plating.

Visual artist in Dubai


When I remember my childhood, the first thing that comes in my mind is drawing and painting activities with my parents, my brother and my sister. It was a serious work beside classic school duty. Paper, pencils and other material were available everywhere at home. Of course it was so fun when we used to compare our “masterpieces”!

At school I remember having pretty good results. My teachers, hopefully, encouraged me. While I grew up, opportunities for drawing competitions made me get trust in me. It became definitely a kind of therapy. Rather shy, I used to express my feelings through my paintings. Fortunately, people appreciated my work and often showed me that I had minimum talent to hang and keep practicing seriously. Basic techniques were necessary. I took courses in order to enhance my abilities.

Once we became adults, my sister and I decided to participate to exhibitions.
These kinds of experiences were so constructive. In December 2006 we organized an exhibition called “triangular pallet” with our mother. It will stay a memorable period.


Before this event, I participated to three exhibitions in 2005, another one in 2006 and two in 2008. My painting style evolved considerably. I slowly slipped towards acrylic technique on canvas. My ambition pushed me to work on large sizes frames. They had a large success. Today, I feel more mature; I am more convinced that painting must take an important place in my life. It is question of inward balance and ambition. I am ready to work hard in order to enhance quality of my artworks. I plan to work with special themes and create collections.

Arts and painting are still an efficient therapy whatever my life would be.
