For a limited time only, you can step into the visual feast that is the Pakistani artist Sara Shakeel’s Oasis at Hia Hub in Jax District, Riyadh. Dubbed the “Waha” exhibition, Shakeel takes all who enter into an otherworldly desert scene radiating with undulating crystal-covered dunes beneath a night sky. While in the immersive exhibition, you can walk into Shakeel’s Swarovski crystal-covered tent, where you will discover more of her bewitching creations that blend fantasy with reality. When speaking on the project, Shakeel has noted that “‘Oasis’ is my way of interpreting an oasis and a haven from the daily hustle and bustle, and for me it symbolizes hope, fertility and holiness.” This exhibition is Sara Shakeel’s ode to the wealth of beauty found in the desert and a dedication to the Saudi people that you won’t want to miss.

Hia Hub is the brainchild of Hia Magazine, and Shakeel fits into the fold not only as a creative, but also as an empowered leader in the arts movement internationally. Having spearheaded projects in fashion, held exhibitions, and ventured into luxury marketing, Shakeel brings her unique point of view to Hia Hub and is aligned with Hia magazine’s continued commitment to excellence, authenticity, and women’s empowerment.

The exhibition is open until December 20th at Hia Hub and is accompanied by experiences like Valentino’s new Party Collection, Hia Hub talks (lead by global female leaders), shows, workshops and master classes. Discover more about “Waha” and the Hia Hub events and visit the exhibition for yourself at the Hia Hub location: Jax District, D9, Diriyah, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
