faces - Monday Mural

I have just returned to Dubai, after long weekend in Turkey. It was quite challenging.
I couldn't post Monday's post on time but I am still in 17th officially so it can count :)

I took this picture in March 2012 at Bastakiya. That was second Sikka Art Fair.
March is the month of art in Dubai. There are several events all around Dubai with different name and concept. This year's event, Sikka 2014 will be in Bastakiya between 15-25 March 2014. I am planning to visit Sikka Fair this Saturday in Bastakiya after visit at Art Dubai on Friday at Souk Medinat.

Al Bastakiya, located along Dubai Creek, is one of the oldest residential areas in Dubai. It is named after the Iranian town of Bastak, from where many of the first residents emigrated. in 2005 the Dubai Municipality started a project to restore the old buildings with their typical wind towers and central courtyards, situated in narrow alleys. Most of the buildings have been converted into art galleries and art centres, cafes, little shops, boutique hotel.
