Project Art, the interactive initiative and community program designed to provide Dubai’s top artists with a free space to exhibit their work, is back with Iranian painter Tara Sabz, who will be exhibiting a range of her works. Hosted at Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens, the three-week Project Art residency runs until November 18, with the self-taught artist showcasing her watercolour-based art, which she says is primarily inspired by everyday life. and the beauties of nature – scenes often overlooked or ignored.

“I’m really excited to be part of Project Art, an initiative that has seen a range of amazing artists showcasing their work,” said Sabz, who has participated in several exhibitions as well as World Art Dubai 2022. As someone who has loved and embraced art all my life, I look forward to introducing it to both property guests and curious visitors.

“The community spirit of Zabeel House is famous in the local art scene and I think people will really enjoy learning about water art while I complete my residency.” She was born in Iran and based in Dubai, specializing in watercolor and mixed media art. She has been interested in painting since she was a child “and so far I have never overlooked any opportunity to learn,” she says. After beginning her artistic life, she took drawing and painting lessons with renowned teachers.

Jara Sabz is an artist based in Dubai.

She started with black and colored pencils and also made hyper-realistic works. Hyperrealism is a genre of painting and sculpture resembling high-resolution photography. It is considered an advance in photorealism by the methods used to create the resulting paintings or sculptures. The term primarily applies to an independent art movement and art style in the United States and Europe that has developed since the early 1970s.

Shortly after, Sabz started painting in oils and over the years she made her way and fell in love with watercolor and mixed media. She gave many watercolor classes where she felt she could share her art and skills. “I never overlooked any opportunity to teach and learn,” she repeats. Due to her interest in watercolour, she continued her work as a watercolourist. Later, she realized that as an artist she had to use all possible tools in creating art. “Art is limitless,” she discovered.

His inspirations are mainly his imagination, everyday life and the beauties of nature – incredible offerings that we pass by without a second thought. The United Arab Emirates provided him with a good opportunity to show his works to art lovers. Since then, she has led an active life in the Dubai art scene. “I think the best way to express feelings is through art,” she says. “The beauty of nature inspires me and I use my imagination to portray the beauty of the landscapes that we simply pass through in our daily lives.

“Observing people and the world around me is one of the biggest motivations for me to create a story in my works. “I want people to question my works and themselves and ask themselves if there there is a story they should follow. I aspire to create the world in a different way that brings hope and excitement to people’s hearts and minds. I dream with my paintings and create a more beautiful world for the life in them.

She thanks Zabeel House of Jumeirah, The Greens, for giving her the opportunity to exhibit her work with the aim of “creating unity for the community”. Through the Two Worlds Collided painting that is on display, she wants to express the thought that there will come a day when we will submit to the power of nature. Therefore, we should join forces with the earth and become one with it.

“It’s a single force that’s forever unified,” says Sabz. “This painting shows that we are all part of nature. We are gathered. We are one.” She will lead a live painting session in the lobby on November 4, allowing visitors to observe her work up close – and the process that creates it. She will also be available to answer any questions about her journey and the unique elements of his style of painting, while guests will be able to purchase several of his works on site.
