Snow in Dubai? Artist recreates emirate as winter wonderland

15.03.2022 <br>
About a month ago, Dubai resident and digital artist Jyo John Mulloor had a vivid dream. When he awoke, he remembered every single detail.

“I was back in Karama where I first lived in when I moved to Dubai in 2006. I was looking out the window and it was snowing. The entire area was white”, he tells The National.

Mulloor, who works for the Dubai advertising agency Innocean Worldwide, then did what he knew best — he turned his dream into art.

His first work, from the same vantage point as in his dream, looks out over Zabeel Park, with the towers of Sheikh Zayed Road in the distance. Nearby, he also added the Dubai Frame, which was inaugurated in 2018.

It’s a familiar scene for most UAE residents, except Mulloor’s striking work shows the city blanketed in snow.

“I remember, in the dream, it was like Christmas Day, and everywhere you looked, it was just white,” he says.

It took more than 25 layers of images, many of them photographs shot by Mulloor himself, and more than 14 hours on his trusty 32-inch Wacom Cintiq creative pen display to create the final image.

“I was doing it outside of working hours, just creating little by little every day. You can say I was a bit obsessed with the project,” Mulloor says.

Encouraged by the result of his first work, Mulloor decided to expand it, to include more scenes in Dubai. His first batch features snow-covered pictures of the newly-opened Museum of the Future, Burj Al Arab, Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai Metro, Downtown Dubai, Expo 2020 Dubai and Global Village.
