During our first pop-up shop, at the A4 Space, we wanted to add the element of interactive art, in which our customers would have the chance to experience art in the literal sense.
For this we chose the artist Maria Iqbal. Maria is widely known for her pop art pieces; fun, vibrant, hand painted furniture, art and accessories. We loved having Maria, who with her beautiful artistic attitude clicked with our customers and art enthusiasts.

During our National Day pop up, we decided to collaborate with local artist Al Anood Al Obaidly.
Al Anood Al Obaidly is Emirati visual artist from Abu Dhabi, UAE. She is a 2013 graduate from the College of Arts and Creative Enterprises at Zayed University, where she earned a B.A. degree in Visual Arts.
We chose Al Anood for her creativity in collages and her amazing ability to connect with people through art. Our Collaboration with the artist included:
- Workshop:In which Collage Methods Will Be Taught During Workshop
