Dubai & Abu Dhabi NFT

UAE-based NFT artist Puja Tiwari channelled her colourful, whimsical and fantastical style for the collaboration. Known as 1800.Weirdo, her works are inspired by her vivid dreams and nightmares. Influenced by the mystic tales of Peruvian culture, COYA’s vibrant values and the history of the UAE, her tenacious yet playful NFTs for COYA symbolise the fine line between masculine and feminine. Like Abu Dhabi and Dubai, her pieces are built from the same values and ethos but still boast their own distinctive personality. Adorned with Aztec motifs in tribute to Peru and sand dunes in honour of Dubai’s natural surroundings, her female figure is an ode to COYA Dubai, while the male figure’s nautical theme represents COYA Abu Dhabi’s waterfront position on Al Maryah Island.


To celebrate COYA’s 10-year anniversary, each COYA across the globe has collaborated with local artists to decorate 10 glass pisco jars in honour of our landmark birthday. All pisco jars are displayed around each COYA for guests to enjoy. COYA Abu Dhabi collaborated with five local artists to the UAE for the pisco jar project. Self-taught artist Ramsha Sh who specializes in collaging, surrealism and realism decorated two jars, which are inspired by street art and a desire to recreate everyday reality in artistic form. Moza Almansoori who used bold acruylic paints and Farida Abudhady who channeled her fine art skills into two pisco jars. Abu Dhabi painter Hissa Almansoori expressed her love for bold, almost cartoon-like images for her pisco jars and Fatima Al Hammadi brought her love for calligrapghy and fine art with two striking jars.
