"In Dubai, I came across two fashionable Rajasthani men walking along the Creek. All about their style appealed to me: it was edgy and futuristic yet still remaining true to their roots. They took it as a compliment when I asked to photograph them. And, as a thank you, they asked to take a photo of me as well...then “click!” the idea came to me as a result of a simple expression of gratitude."

Emergeast is an online gallery championing the latest generation of emerging Middle Eastern & North African artists to a new generation of young collectors. Emergeast’s aim, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Shop, is to break down the barriers to collecting art by facilitating access to high quality artworks at accessible prices.
Through a highly curated selection of Middle East and North African (MENA) artists, our mission is to incubate an un-intimidating space for young collectors, first time buyers and general art enthusiasts to foster a deep connection between artists and collector for generations to come.
At Emergeast x Aga Khan Museum Shop, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Beyond the aesthetics, the story and inspirations behind an artwork can support one’s personal narrative and journey thereafter. Through building our Urbanite community of collectors, we aim to expand and develop a cultural appetite for the arts and beyond.
