GULF NEWS: Brand Dubai, an initiative launched by the Government of Dubai Media Office, in collaboration with Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) and a host of young artists, has created a giant mural covering the hoardings of the construction site of Union House on Jumeirah Road. The initiative comes in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to turn Dubai into an open-air gallery, highlighting the unique character of the city as one of the world’s fastest growing and culturally diverse cities, and emphasising the creative aspect of Dubai’s achievements in all fields. At six metres in height and over 300 metres wide, the project is part of “Dubai Speaks to You” and the product of a cooperation between Brand Dubai and RTA to implements ideas and initiatives that enrich Dubai’s artistic landscape and features.
