Located on the Corniche, one of Abu Dhabi's favourite places, the N2N Gallery is one of the most frequently visited art galleries in the city. A rather new member to the art scene of Abu Dhabi, the N2N showcases a number of modern pieces that hails all the way from Europe as well. In fact, the N2N by nature is a foreign concept that was created within the UAE shores by two Ukrainian art enthusiasts. The gallery showcases over 170 pieces of art most of which are brought to life by Ukrainian artists. 13 different artists have contributed in the finery that can be witnessed at this gallery. Also included in this list are big names such as Spanish pastel master Cesar Estrany and the famous French artist, Christian Jequel. A mosaic of sculpture, graphic art and an array of paintings in a variety of mediums, the exhibits create an intriguing fusion between modernism and realism. Like the Etihad, the N2N also gives back to the art world by hosting art classes where budding artists are taught from great talents.
