On1 Culture: An Urban Arts Enthusiast, Mohammed Abedin


Mohammed Abedin, Artist
If you ask Mohammed Abedin what he does, the 26-year-old says he is an urban arts enthusiast, a fan of Asian culture and history, a designer and collector of toys and a lover of games. Even that list fails to adequately describe the full range of his interests.

Abedin was named as one of the inaugural candidates for the Abu Dhabi Art UAE Designer Programme. Abedin manages to balance with his day job as a senior executive for projects and events with the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.

Despite the workload and the pressure, Abedin has even more projects on the drawing board and sees his ideal job as an opportunity to give something back to Dubai.

Abedin -

“I love this country and I love this city – it’s my home – and instead of just doing stuff for myself I want to give something back to the community as well. There’s a lot of local talent to represent here and it’s an extremely exciting time to be working in the arts.”
