In Pictures: Dubai artist Kristel Bechara creates superhero art works
Her drawings are hanging in restaurants and banks
If ever we needed a hero, it's now.
Dubai-based artist Kristel Bechara has created a Superheroes collection to inspire courage in these tough times.
Though part of pop culture, the superheroes represent qualities we can all get behind - bravery and the victory of good over evil.
Combining digital and acrylic works, the Lebanese artist uses an innovative method of photographic imagery with oil, acrylic and giclée printmaking mediums to depict emotion.
From Captain America to Supergirl, all our favourites are here.
Kristel's works are already adorning commercial space, from a restaurant in Jumeirah, to the HQ of Standard Chartered, where she supplied a piece representing the pay gap between male and female artists.
Once we're out and about again, see them at urban coffe shop and bakery Around the Block, in Al Wasl, Dubai, Meydan's Soho Gardens bar, DIFC lounge Spark by Caramel and in Marina Home stores, amongst other locations.
Talented Kristel is also an award winner - she was bestowed with the UAE Resident Artist Award at World Art Dubai 2018.
