N2N Gallery

A newcomer to Abu Dhabi’s art scene, N2N has been bringing inspiring art collections from Europe to the UAE and Abu Dhabi since May 2013. Founded by two Ukrainian expats, Natalya Muzaleva and Natalia Petrukha, the gallery blends sculpture, graphic art and paintings in a surprising fusion between realism and modernism. Focusing especially on artists from Ukraine, N2N offers a fascinating encounter with the artists of this Eastern European country in the far-away UAE. The gallery features the creations of sculptors Gennadiy Titov, Klim Stepanov, Oleksandr Kuzmin; graphic artists Grygoriy Sokirinskiy, Oksana Stratiychuk and painters Tetyana Yagodkina and Petro Bevza, among many others.


Etihad Modern Art Gallery

One of most dynamic art galleries in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Modern Art is not to be missed while exploring the city’s top art venues. Aspiring to promote local art and encourage the growth of the UAE’s art scene, the gallery showcases the works of acclaimed, but also emerging international and regional artists such as Ufuc Kobas, Svilen Petrov, Sattar Kawoosh or Khalid Al Najjad. The gallery is definitely the perfect place for the aspiring artists among us, as workshops and art classes are organised all year long, and cater to all age groups.
