Working alongside students from Zayed University , the 40-meters Embassy mural reads: "Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder"; a comment on the juxtaposition of the traditional and the modern that encapsulates the dynamics of this unique region.

Ahead of his debut solo in the Gulf region, British artist Ben Eine has just completed a 40-metre  outdoor mural  on the walls  of  the  British  Embassy  in  Abu  Dhabi. Working alongside students from Zayed University , the 40-meters Embassy mural reads: "Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder"; a comment on the juxtaposition of the traditional and the modern that encapsulates the dynamics of this unique region.
In  a  truly  groundbreaking moment for the art scene in the region, his Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan joined Her Majesty’s Ambassador Philip Parham and British Council Country Director, Marc  Jessel to inaugurate the wall, with His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan taking up a spray can for the first time, to personally ‘tag’ the wall.
Sheikh  Nahyan  commented:  “This  is  the  second-oldest  building  in  in  Abu  Dhabi.  I  couldn’t
think  of  a  better place  to  have  this  piece  of  art  as  it  represents  the  strong  relationship between  the  UK  and  the  UAE  on  an official and personal level. I think it will inspire the next generation of artists to express themselves.”
Eine  solo show Hand in Hand will open on Monday March 16 with Dubai gallery ARTSPACE, ahead of Art Dubai 2015.
