Mural by Geo Bressana

In addition to the d3-based brands partaking in d3 Rethink Interiors, the d3 interiors focus is also a time to put a spotlight on the striking, larger-than-life mural at d3, which is the work of renowned Italian interior artist, Gio Bressana. An inspiring combination of art traditions throughout history, the fresco (which measures 10x15m) merges art, luxury and innovation and injects a new renaissance touch into Dubai.  It is located between buildings 8 and 9 at d3 and took Bressana some five days to complete.

Gio Bressana is a visionary painter whose work graces the home of heads of State and royal families around the world and his d3 commission bridges the past and present as well as traditional forms of the UAE and Europe and brings a touch of Italian and new-renaissance style to Dubai. Gio Bressana has earned his renowned and distinct style by combining multiple traditions and forms of art - traversing Baroque and Gothic to Neoclassical, Impressionism, Liberty and Modern.
