Maraya Art Centre is delighted to announce its participation in the 2019 edition of Xposure International Photography Exhibition with Emirati artist Obaid Mohammed Al Budoor (“beedii”). We invite all art and photography lovers to a new world of Experience, from 19 September to 22 September at Expo Centre, Sharjah.

A renowned photographer and visual storyteller within the local scene, with a passion for travelling, as he is known to his thousands of online followers, has established a reputation for visually stunning images of landscapes both in the UAE and the wider region. Albudoor’s work highlights the variety of stunning landscapes across Sharjah, documenting the diverse natural vistas in a number of lesser-known or frequented areas around the Emirate, and he is also known for presenting his work to various international clients including “Apple”, “Vogue”, and “National Geographic Abu Dhabi”.

Dr.Nina Heydemann, Director of Maraya Art Centre, said “We are thrilled to be working with Obaid Albudoor to present his work, capturing the richness of Sharjah’s natural environment and the myriad of phenomenal views available across the Emirate. Our aim, in line with the values of Shurooq, is to continue to develop the artistic community, providing a platform for emerging local artists and fostering a dialogue between them and the wider community.”  

Speaking ahead of the exhibition, Obaid said “I wanted to show the breadth and variety that Sharjah has to offer. From the city, distant mountains in the east, and the farthest shores in Khor Fakkan. I hope that the exhibition leaves viewers in awe of places they didn't know were so close to home and encourages them to explore their local community.”
