Merriam Webster defines art as “something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings”. Based on this definition art can be thought of as vague but not vague in a negative sense. Vague to a point of beauty. Abstract to a point of shared connection. All of us at some point or the other share connections through art and its related sub fields. There is a beauty in art and none of us can deny that.

Art Fusion Night (AFN) is an event platform based in Dubai which means to showcase undiscovered and unknown works of brilliance. Its a simple yet elegant idea. We tend to associate art with the big names: Da Vince, Gogh, Picasso and the likes and obviously the more contemporary ones as well. But without the bias of popularity, fame and social pressure into liking accepted forms of art, AFN is trying to build a reputation of elevating talents of unknown backgrounds. That’s what gives it an alluring appeal as an event platform. As by definition, art is something not to be associated with something concrete and definite so why do we choose to associate ourselves with certain names of creativity, certain paintings, certain styles? AFN lets you see the other side to creativity. Yes, AFN is not the only platform in the world to give a diverse nature to art but in Dubai it is an up and coming name with promotes a diverse nature look to art.

Their latest campaign is called Art/Fashion Fever. It is defined to be a night where the community of people who appreciate art can meet the people behind the showcased works. It is an event where according to AFN “ lifestyle and networking meet in perfect harmony”.
