Watch: Burj Khalifa has two new LED light shows for Ramadan

By

You can catch them every day during the Holy Month…

Burj Khalifa has two brand new LED light shows taking place daily during Ramadan. Both displays have been created by artists who have had their work beamed onto the Burj Khalifa before.

One of the shows is making a return for the second year in a row. The display is a digital representation of prolific artist, Art Noor’s paintings inspired by the 99 names of Allah, which were exhibited at The Dubai Mall and on Burj Khalifa during Ramadan 2018. The 99 paintings took 15 years to complete.

Speaking on his Instagram about last year’s show, Art Noor said, “When the painted divine names, in brilliant LED colours flow down the world’s tallest tower the heart misses a beat or two, followed by that rare euphoric feeling. The show was made possible by a hybrid of art in its most basic form – painting by hand and then digitised by complex electronic technology of the 21st century.”

The second three-minute show is by a designer who is also familiar with seeing his work displayed on the world’s tallest building. Karl Taylor-Knight is the designer behind some of the Burj Khalifa’s most creative and colourful graphic displays. His new show is accompanied by oriental music and features a crescent moon, Arabic lanterns and a series of gold Arabic geometric patterns.

Daily shows run from 7.45pm to 10.45pm, and take place hourly from Sundays to Wednesdays and every half an hour from Thursdays to Saturdays until Eid.
