Named #UnitedArtEmirates, Dubai-based Art Painting Lab has launched a collaborative initiative with the aim of uniting and nourishing the UAE's art community. Artists, amateurs, children and adults alike are invited to create and share a piece of visual art which will be contributed towards the creation of a public mural.
The mural is intended to mark this important moment in history, depicting the solidarity of UAE's residents during a time of unpredictable change and uncertainty.

“Historically art renaissances occur during tremendous events and often incredible art comes out of them," says Sam Saliba, founder of Art Painting Lab.
"We hope you will send us your artworks, there is no judgement, good or bad work. Paint like no one is watching."
