Simon Coates is an English artist originally from London and now relocated to Dubai. The images and objects he creates balance the freedom of action and/or abstract expressionism with an academic approach to both his work’s themes and their execution.

The exhibition includes work conceived and executed during Coates’ residency at this year’s Sikka Art Fair in Bastakiya, Dubai, and are on public display for the first time. The Sikka Art Fair is the fringe festival that runs parallel to Art Dubai.

Project Works: 2010-2011 runs May 11, 2011 to July 11, 2011.
