Dubai Colouring for Mindfulness is a publishing edition of two books creating a visual and graphic compilation of Dubai and its time. It documents cultural patterning, visual vocabularies and iconic grammar through two compendia of colouring drawings that summarise the unique characteristics of the city. Each book contains more than 60 sketches for colouring that visually create a catalogue of Dubai’s buildings, people, dress, transport, animals and more, in a similar order to that in which a visitor would experience the city. Mindfulness, in its fundamental essence, proposes paying attention consciously in the present moment in a non-judgemental manner. The books thus strive to grip the essence of present Dubai, documenting its attempts to maintain its past and traditions while creating a fascinating new future.
