Moscow is about to get a fresh dose of contemporary Arabic art as a luxury hotel plays host to a cultural exhibition.

The Four Seasons Hotel Moscow is set to put the spotlight on Iraqi artist Zaina El-Said. As part of its Supperclub project, which see the creation of a platform for global artists, the new exhibition will showcase El-Said's unique digital and collage techniques in creating dream-like images.

In an interview with online art gallery Emergeast, El-Said reveals that she's inspired by "everything beautiful" and that being a Middle Eastern artist has been a boon for her. "Our region is rich in ancient history, art and architecture," she said. "We are the inheritors of a thousand year old culture that overflows with profound inspirational elements. Being brought up in the Middle East, and being familiar with its historical and contemporary facets, my works are unintentionally inspired by this region."
