Dubai, Jun 25, 2019 :Tanya Ashraf, Founder and Creative Director of Roxx Fashion who hails from Thumbay, Mangalore, renowned yogi Bharat Thakur, Founder of Artistic Yoga, together with five other acclaimed artists showcased their artwork at Melange, which was held at the Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre on the 21st of June 2019. The exhibition featured contemporary works of art, along with bronze sculptures, and was curated by Peter Gressmann, Founder of Art Forum UAE.
Tanya Ashraf exhibited select paintings that are a reflection of the Gulf region together with her signature abstract pieces that portray her own unique dynamic style. The crescendo of the evening was certainly Roxx’s fashion show, which added a twist to the event by combining art with fashion. Quoting Tanya Ashraf, “Combining art with fashion has been a natural evolution for me. By doing so I have been able to literally redefined my work and have taken it to a completely different level. Art in the traditional sense can be defined as static. Merging static art with fashion creates something tactile – resulting in pieces of wearable art that one can touch, feel and interact with, creating more of a performance, all while adding a new dimension to the art itself. I cannot claim that I intentionally set about to do so, but rather naturally progressed to where I am now. And the results as you can see, have proven to be an interesting body of work that I continue to build upon. For me fashion is part of my everyday lifestyle. Now, it is undoubtedly a form of art that is constantly evolving”.
