Mike Arnold will be launching ODYSSEY this coming March - his new, exclusive and unseen collection dedicated to the journey that we all take through life; both physically and spiritually - personified by the incredible journey of the UAE in his distinctive impressionist style_ The show will feature brand new original Monochromic Paintings and an exciting launch of brand new limited edition prints_

The exhibition launches on Saturday 5th March 2022 with an evening VIP preview and will run until Sunday, 27th March_

In 2012 Mike completed his 40-year career in architecture to pursue a lifelong passion for painting and exchanged his drawing board for an easel and his design office for an artist’s studio_

In ‘Odyssey’ Mike paints monochromatic scenes inspired by a deep connection to the UAE’s richness - its history, people, and dramatic natural environment_ He uses his canvas as a platform for interpreting the atmosphere of life’s experiences and journeys in the Emirates, exposing the unique light reflected both in familiar locales alongside spectacular, distant landscapes and intimate personal moments_ His paintings are structured to bring forward the feelings of remote imagery to the power of the present space_

Undulating desert landscapes and caravans, coastal life above and below the blue gulf waters, and life portraits of the wizened and weathered adventurer fill his exhibition_ In his new body of work, he chases the light and energy of life’s journey that has transformed the nation and captures it to reveal the essence of their hard-earned lessons_
