Photographer's Note

Dubai has many amazing murals. This is an example in the area City Walk. Fifteen of the world's best-loved urban artists have been given a blank canvas on which to decorate one of Dubai's most popular districts.

Part of the inaugural Dubai Walls project, big names from the street art world, including Rone, Eine, Nick Walker, Magda Sayeg and Blek Le Rat, have left their creative stamp all over City Walk in Jumeirah.

Visitors to the destination can see a range of statement pieces and interactive art, all of varying sizes, from full wall installations down to miniscule pop-up model art.

English-born Eelus left his hometown and moved to London in 2000. At that time, artists like Banksy and Ben Eine already had a major artistic presence and street art began to gain a foothold in the greatest galleries. When the workshop Pictures on Walls gave Eelus the opportunity to promote his first graphic work, it was sold almost immediately, allowing the artist to quit his job and concentrate on his artistic creations professionally. Finding inspiration in the culture of cinema and literature Eelus is now experimenting with new means of creation between sculpture and painting based on layers of paper, in addition to his limited edition prints and large graffiti murals.

I have many pictures of the murals in Dubai, I will show some of them if there will be interest.
