Urban art

Capturing the nation’s heritage
in urban art

In 2019, we partnered with Abu Dhabi Art in an initiative to enhance the region’s urban landscape with public art. A series of commissioned pieces are now on display at our Reem Central Park development, decorating 24 pillars around the skate park, playgrounds, staircases and bollard walls

Created by acclaimed local artist Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim and the Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Collective, the artwork draws on a range of influences, from the park’s multicultural visitors to pre-Islamic poetry and the Arabic folklore and motifs on items at the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Etihad Museum.
