During my stay in Dubai last week, I came across an exhibition titled Project: MEGA in Dubai Mall. It's considered Middle East's largest Designer Toy exhibit. And it features designer toys created by 125 Dubai-based artists. MEGA is basically a white vinyl figure and stands 8 inches tall. Any person can purchase it to customize it to his/her liking, the customization process is done easy thanks to MEGA's detachable parts. If you ever feel like expressing your inner Picasso, you can get your own MEGA at any of Virgin Megastore outlets across the U.A.E.
Back to the exhibition, I was really amazed by the work done by these 125 artists! I'm talking jaw dropping creations here! I wanted to snap a photo of each and every toy on display, but I'd spend hours doing that. The attention to detail and the amount of creativity used to design these toys has sure left me mesmerized.
The exhibition was launched on 28th June and will be on display until today 8th July. For the chance to own one of these unique art pieces, the organizers of the event will be having an auction for all of the art pieces on the 12th of July at the FN Designs studio in Al Qouz, Dubai.
