    Daa Art, launched in 2022, emerged out of our shared vision to create a platform for recent graduates, emerging artists and UK based international artists, and aspires to promote critical conversations and creative exchanges between contemporary artists who will shape the future of the contemporary art world. 
    Our aim is to foster meaningful dialogue between artists from the Middle East and those from the Western world. Our goal is to create a platform where diverse voices can intersect, sparking critical conversations and cultural exchange. By showcasing the works of Middle Eastern artists alongside Western counterparts, we seek to highlight the rich tapestry of artistic expression while exploring themes of identity, tradition, and innovation. Through this juxtaposition of styles, forms, and trends, we invite visitors to explore the interconnectedness of global art movements and to appreciate the depth and diversity of artistic expression across borders.
    At Daa Art, we take pride in showcasing the diverse talents of our artists through several exhibitions. Among these, we regularly hold a series of house visits, private viewings, as well as two pop-up exhibitions per year.
    Through our exhibitions, we aim to foster a dynamic and vibrant environment that not only promotes the art itself but also supports the artists in their journey. We believe that by facilitating these connections between artists and their audience, we can help both the creators and the appreciators of art to engage in meaningful, inspiring interactions.


    The platform was founded by a couple Sareh Javid and Alireza Rahnama out of their shared goal to make inaccessible art, accessible to everyone worldwide. It is our ambition to create a platform that will become a major resource upon which artists, collectors, researchers, as well as the broader artistic community might draw in the future. Our primary goal is to bring our artists' works to the attention of the right audience. This audience spans a wide spectrum, including passionate art collectors who are seeking unique and captivating pieces to enrich their collections, as well as esteemed academicians who are interested in studying and appreciating the artistic expressions of our talented creators.
