These Ramadan Sharing Fridges are actual works of art
The Fridge Art Initiative has been brightening up hidden corners of Dubai this Ramadan…
The Ramadan Sharing Fridges initiative is always a highlight of the holy month, and this year it’s bigger than ever, with more than 200 fridges dotted around the city.
This Ramadan, a group of volunteer artists joined forces to make the fridges even more special. They used their skills to turn some of the fridges into colourful masterpieces, to help them stand out and attract more donations.
Fridge Art Initiative organiser Rosan Reodica Juan told What’s On last month: “We believe having art on the fridges will help brighten up the day of the community workers who may not be able to encounter art on the daily.
“Art should be shared, and not limited to galleries and museums.”
Here are some of the amazing works of fridge art, which are showcased on the @fridgeartindxb Instagram account.

“Needless to say it was hard going, with the dehydration being the toughest part,” he said.
