A FEAST FOR THE EYES

Friday - - Inside -

Great food meets fine art at Okku, where Dubai-based Cana­dian vis­ual artist Nik Ne­jad brings a feast of Ja­panese art­work to your din­ner ta­ble. His se­ries of light boxes, ti­tled En­ter, remix tra­di­tional Geisha girl and pagoda im­agery with pop-art-style neon washes and cut­ting-edge ef­fects for an ex­hi­bi­tion that’s as ef­fort­lessly trendy as the restau­rant dis­play­ing it. In­spired by the artist’s trav­els across Ja­pan, the strangely beau­ti­ful col­lec­tion is as psy­che­delic and weirdly won­der­ful as the coun­try it­self and makes for an in­spir­ing evening out.

The in­stal­la­tion is in place un­til the end of Ra­madan in the restau­rant at The H Ho­tel, Shaikh Zayed Road. To book log on to www.okku.com or call 04 501 8777.
