You may recently have seen BIS Abu Dhabi’s first ever publication, our thrilling novel The City.
Perhaps you wondered who created that stunning etching of a vaguely familiar distorted city landscape with swooping migrating birds? We can thank Year 12 Visual Arts student Safa for that fantastic book illustration cover. However, that’s not the only thing we can thank her for…
Safa recently submitted another of her illustrations into a prestigious international competition. The Catalogue Cover Competition was run by 'Specialist – Arts Craft & Design', one of the most popular Arts materials suppliers for industry professionals and education suppliers, overseas, in the UAE and UK. This annual competition challenged students to create an artwork for their catalogue cover for the following year.
We are thrilled and immensely proud to announce that Safa was selected as one of the winners in this global competition! Her spectacular illustration of Abu Dhabi’s iconic Al Bahr Towers was selected as the Catalogue Cover winner for the UAE, and will be featured on all catalogues distributed in the region for 2021. Not only will Safa’s artwork be featured on the cover of next year’s catalogue, she also won herself and the school 1200AED worth of vouchers… thank you Safa!
