From intricate oil paintings to life-sized sculptures, artists specialising in equestrian art have showcased their works to a discerning crowd who are passionate about purebred Arabian horses at the 12th Dubai International Horse Fair Art Gallery.

Silvana Pittin from Venice, Italy, has been painting, riding and celebrating Arabian horses for more than 20 years. “I specialise in painting Arabian horses and camels because I simply love them – they are the best breed in the world.” Pittin has a range of oil painting available for sale or commission.

Frenchman Remi Bertoche makes a comeback to the Dubai International Horse Fair for the fifth time with his larger than life paintings, which depict horse racing, Arabian breeds and riders. “Over the time I have participated at the Dubai International Horse Fair I have gained a strong following in the Middle East from royal family members to horse studs and VIP clients who love horses.”

Gold Line Italia, also exhibiting at the show, specialises in silver and gold horse sculptures with precious stones and materials that range from €100 (AED400) to €50,000 (AED207,000). “Our production is 100% Italian made with specialised artisans, painters and sculptors producing these customised pieces. About 90% of all the pieces we produce are sold to the GCC market from royal families and VIPs from various sectors who want to buy gifts,” said Loredana Sandona, General Manager of Gold Line Italia.

Arend Eloff, from South Africa, has showcased his range of bronze horse sculptures that range from a few centimetres in size to three metre life-sized pieces. The artist specialises in horses and wild life, which are hugely popular among Middle East art lovers and equestrian aficionados.
