Art connoisseurs can celebrate Art Week by dining with whimsical contemporary art at La Petite Maison Dubai.

Starting from Thursday 15 March, dining at La Petite Maison in Dubai will be like attending a dinner party at the home of a renowned art curator.

This collaboration stems from a long relationship and shared values between the two neighboring establishments.

The American artist Jeff Koons’ iconic balloon animal sculptures, cast in porcelain and vividly colored, reportedly sell for millions of US dollars. In 2013, Koons’ “Balloon Dog (Orange)” smashed the record for any living artist when it sold for USD 58.4 million at auction.

At La Petite Maison, guests can view Koons’ balloon animal sculptures of a dog, swan, rabbit, and monkey. Also, on display will be “Split-Rocker” – a miniature porcelain version of his planted sculptural form, constructed from halves a of two toy rockers, a pony and a dinosaur.

Chilean artist Eduardo Guelfenbein’s unique “liquid abstraction” acrylic paintings combine lines and swirls that resemble a cosmic creation.

Guelfenbein - FlightGuelfenbein, inspired by his nomadic lifestyle and sensibilities, uses bold lines and riveting colors that can infuse the dining experience. The artworks were chosen to complement the vivid and summery colors of the paintings on permanent display in the venue.
