Portraiture is one of the finest arts and Showcase Gallery (warehouse 35 in Alserkal Avenue) celebrates the work of three distinct artists. Iskra Shahaj presents oil paintings, often self-portraits, or those of her close family, while Olivia Pendergast paints in Africa. The third artist is Victor Sitali, a young Zambian artist based in Dubai whose career began at ‘Mawaheb’ in the Al Fahidi District of Bur Dubai.
