ME Dubai hotel, which was fully designed by Dame Zaha Hadid, announced contemporary artist Mark Rios, aka Mr Dripping, as its first Artist in Residence.
In this collaboration, the artist took up a pop-up studio in ME Dubai's Atrium by Zaha Hadid to showcase his works in a temporary display on the hotel's first floor.
The partnership was inaugurated and celebrated with a live show in the hotel's Atrium. The event saw the artist from Barcelona, who has been likened to famous artist Jackson Pollock, creating a piece of art in real-time, dripping lines of paint onto a large canvas laid on the floor of The Atrium. It was attended by a selection of the UAE's movers and shakers.
