Exhibiting at Opera Gallery Dubai until April 15th
The exhibition is the perfect opportunity to both commemorate the progression of culture and art in Dubai as well as celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Opera Gallery Dubai. The gallery has been a driving force behind the evolution of art in the region and the calibre of this artist is only one example of that. Opera Gallery Dubai is part of the well-established international network known for showcasing contemporary artists from around the world and is honoured to host Manolo Valdes’s first exhibition in the Middle East where more than 25 of his works are on display.
Manolo Valdes is a rare breed of artists who has mastered multiple artistic disciplines in this career. Born in Valencia, Spain, Valdes works in paint, sculpture and mixed media and describes his works as having a life beyond the themes and boundaries of an exhibition. Much like the old saying ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’, each of his works can be read differently, interacted with differently and each have something different to tell the observer.
In addition to brand new sculptures and works on canvas, Opera Gallery Dubai has installed 5 monumental sculptures throughout the DIFC for a period of one year, as part of the neighbourhood’s public art integration program.
