Acclaimed Iranian Artist, Nasser Ovissi and renowned Dubai based sweets and pastries company VIVEL collaborate on a pop-up art gallery and sweets boutique in Dubai Design District from March 21st to March 29th. In celebration of the collaboration, that coincides with art season in Dubai, VIVEL and Nasser Ovissi create a luxurious limited edition box of sweets.

Nasser Ovissi is an award-winning Iranian Artist recognised for his paintings globally, while VIVEL, founded 25 years ago in Dubai, by Shahnaz Bagherzadeh, offers the widest collection of high-quality handcrafted confectionary available in any single store in the world. Boasting a premium position in the UAE provides the best quality sweets, chocolates and teas, VIVEL places a lot of emphasis on the art of packaging with several collaborations through the years with regional and international artists. Naturally, the collaboration with esteemed artist Nasser Ovissi and limited edition box design is another incredible collaboration for the brand.

OVISSI + VIVEL

For the first time in many years, octogenarian Nasser Ovissi will be in Dubai and present at the pop up gallery where a large selection of his artwork will be showcased. Very popular in the country among art lovers, Nasser is amongst the most admired Persian artists and has sold many paintings at exhibitions and auctions throughout the years, around the world and Middle East.

The limited edition box showcases one of Nasser Ovissi’s most famous paintings featuring a gold horse on a royal blue background. VIVEL selected this particular painting as the horse is synonymous with Ovissi’s art and very close to the heart of the UAE Nationals. Additionally, the pop-up boutique will be offering a selection of VIVEL’s best selling sweets and confectionary products along with a small range of VIVEL’s infamous Gourmet Tea range.

‘’It is an honour for VIVEL to collaborate with such a distinguished and famous artist. We have always been admirers of Nasser Ovissi’s works, especially his rich colours and emphasis on the horse which is very popular in the Arabian Peninsula. We are very proud to associate our name with his through a one of a kind collaboration”, commented Ehsan Hosseini, Director of VIVEL on the collaboration with Nasser Ovissi.
