30 works of fiction every man should read by the time he's a grown up (and why)
After a decade of anonymous painting popping up on the streets of Paris, the artist now revealed as Gully is ready for his first major exhibition in Dubai. From the 30th September to the 15th October, Opera Gallery in DIFC will be hosting the French artist's 'Beyond the Canvas.' Displaying strong influences from classic American pop art and illustrations, such as Norman Rockwell and Roy Lichtenstein, the exhibition earns its name by encompassing both the viewer and the piece in question into the same sphere. Here are a selection of pieces to look out for.
The basics that should form the foundations of your wardrobe
Esquire Middle East, in Partnership with the Galleria on Al Maryah Island, celebrated the release of the annual Best Dressed Men on May 31, with a sumptuous evening at Dai Pai Dong at the Rosewood Abu Dhabi. The Best Dressed men were flown in by helicopter and picked up in chauffeured cars, setting the evening off to a special start before it had even begun. And while the evening celebrated a select few gentlemen, the whole event showed off the style of the UAE's elegant residents. A huge thank you goes out to our partners, the Galleria on Al Maryah Island, and their fantastic team. Thank you to the Paul Smith team who dressed team Esquire on the evening. Thank you also to Molton Brown for their gifts, Rivoli for the great watches on show, Sole Agency for the perfect entertainment, Si02 for their cotinuing support and wonderful set-ups and Falcon Aviation who allowed us to make the most stylish of entrances.
