Be Immersed in the Iconic World of Renowned Artist Alena Lavdovskaya with an Extraordinary Exhibition and Workshop at ME Dubai
ME Dubai, a haven of architectural marvel nestled in the heart of Dubai, continues its commitment to fostering creativity and innovation in the arts and design in the region as it welcomes the world-renowned artist and illustrator, Alena Lavdovskaya, as the latest Artist in Residence. The immersive exhibition will showcase Alena’s iconic work throughout her 20 years in the industry, encompassing her illustrious career in fashion, advertising, and editorial magazines.
ME Dubai will showcase her works starting Monday, May 15th, until Saturday, June 10th, and promises a captivating experience for patrons and visitors.
A fashion illustrator, creator of unique workshops, and the founder of Fashion Illustration Studio, Russia’s first illustration and art-content agency for the fashion industry, Alena is best known for her glamourous illustrations and sketches. Featuring live models and high-fashion looks, the portraits recreate the atmosphere of a real photoshoot and illustrations of the 20th century. Having worked with esteemed maisons such as Christian Dior and fashion magazines such as Vogue and Elle, Alena will bring her expansive knowledge and savoir-faire to ME Dubai with an immersive live drawing performance, a fashion illustration workshop, and intimate lectures, offering guests a peak at her artistic prowess and sensibilities.
Alena Lavdovskaya’s exhibition will create a symbiotic synthesis with ME Dubai’s fashion-forward architecture and contemporary curves, echoing the runways of Milan and Paris and combining the silhouettes of master couturiers, bringing them to life with her masterful strokes and vivid colours. Weaving in the old with the new, ME Dubai summons the world of haute couture and old-world glamour with Alena’s masterful artworks surrounded by Zaha Hadid’s visionary architecture and sublime curves, a juxtaposition where elegance reigns.
Guests, visitors, and patrons of the arts alike are welcome to visit ME Dubai’s designated gallery space and see firsthand Alena’s immersive and glamorous illustrations during her month-long residency, beginning with an exclusive launch party on 15th May.
