CANVAS – TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT ART

Published by Mixed Media, an exclusive boutique publishing house based in Dubai Media City, Canvas gives art from across the region a dynamic voice on the international stage. Immaculately researched and presented, Canvas is a feast for anyone who values culture. Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Ali Khadra, describes Canvas as ‘a voyage of discovery that sets out to explore art and culture from a new perspective’. Edited by Myrna Ayad, numerous international experts on the region’s art and culture (both ancient and modern) contribute to every edition.

Since its launch in January 2005, Canvas has received widespread acclaim from the royal households of the region, leading artists and devotees of art across the world. From Coco Chanel’s private art collection in Paris to the record-breaking inaugural Christie’s art auction in Dubai, its exclusive features seek to enhance the appreciation and understanding of art from Middle East and Arab world.

In addition, the magazine’s free supplement, the Canvas Guide, has proven equally popular. Previewing a multitude of international events – from the Sydney Bienniale to Dubai’s Desert Rhythm Festival – as well as fresh young talent, the Canvas Guide has helped to establish the region as a hotbed of creativity.

Ali Khadra believes that Canvas reaches far beyond the realm of art. ‘We live in vulnerable times, in which ethnicity, religion, politics and geography split societies with suspicion rather than uniting people with understanding. By bringing Middle Eastern and Arabian art and culture to the world’s attention, Canvas is able to showcase all that is good about the region, and has been so for centuries.’ Canvas is an exclusive magazine with extraordinary content. Available on news stands as well as by subscription, it celebrates the phenomenal power of art.
