Skateboarding & Art in the Middle East

If art and skateboarding had a baby in the Middle East, it would be called Tashkeel. Only in Dubai could such a cross-cultural affair create such a striking beauty as a skate ramp made in the shape of the Arabic language itself - in this case with the word Tashkeel, which translates artistically as a structure around which one creates. Expect expats, Emiratis and the occasional princess to show up for a session on the art ramp or under the canopy of the billowy ghaf trees in the adjacent wooden bowl. Other such acts of artistic cross-pollination can be found inside where studios for printmaking, photography, textiles and fine arts surround a gallery that hold the expressions of a new generation. Feel free to skate, hang out with the artists and browse the exhibitions.
