Our Art
And Culture

We are committed to sharing art in the community and collaborate with artists from all over the world to create murals and artworks to be enjoyed by everyone, every day. We also bring artistic flair to our development designs, creating iconic landmarks and attractive communities.

Art Initiatives

Art Space

Art Space is a collaborative initiative between the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi and Aldar Properties that aims to enrich Abu Dhabi's art ecosystem and provide exhibition spaces for local artists in Abu Dhabi.

Words of Art

In celebration of the UAE’s 45th National Day, we launched a calligraphy competition, inspired by a poem produced in collaboration with poet Hassan Al Obaidly, composer Mousa Mohammad and singer Aida Al Menhali. Participants were invited to submit a design, and the 10 finalist of the competition had their work displayed at Yas Mall.

String Art

We commissioned Emirati artist May Ali to create a series of string art pieces, based on abstract interpretations of our architectural designs. The pieces are currently on display at HQ, to be enjoyed by visitors and employees alike.
