Programme Details

Aldar Properties PJSC (‘Aldar’), in partnership with Abu Dhabi Art has commissioned a series of public artworks in its Reem Central Park as part of its ongoing efforts to enhance Abu Dhabi’s urban landscape with accessible art within its destinations across the Emirate.
Local artists Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim and Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, were commissioned to embellish surfaces of Reem Central Park on Reem Island, creating an even more interesting environment for visitors to the one million square foot park.
The artists were inspired by the multitude of visitors to the park from different cultures, as well as pre-Islamic poetry, Arabic folklore, and motifs found on items from collections at Louvre Abu Dhabi and Etihad Museum. The public art works now adorn 24 pillars surrounding the 2,400 sqm skate park, staircases and four playgrounds, and four bollard walls, adding another element to the popular attraction, which also features sports facilities and a water and light show.

Artists: Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian (Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde) | Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim (Lawrie Shabibi)
Location: Reem Central Park, Al Reem Island
