Novus Art Gallery
“A journey of million miles begins with first step.”
Inspired by a version of famous Lao Tzu’s quote, Novus Art Gallery’s first show features some of the most iconic artworks by artists represented by the gallery. All pieces are carefully selected to narrate a comprehensive story, while providing unique visual and aesthetic impact. Featuring strong and memorable, yet fresh and easily recognizable traits, the exhibition is created to make an imprint in its audience’s minds. Widely used in the art and decoration of Ancient Rome, in the paintings of the Renaissance and in art and lacquerware of China, the colour vermillion is representative of a brilliant, yet daring and unforgettable hue: all these traits are exactly what the opening exhibition is designed to be.
Novus Art Gallery is located in the luxurious setting of The Galleria in Al Mariyah Island, bringing some of the world’s best art to the heart of the capital.
Artists: Marco Angelini, Saschia Bovini, Hanaa Mallalah, Ran Hwang, Ahmad Moualla, Richard Orlinski, Hunt Slonem, Robert Webber, Wang Xiaosong, Jason Young
