About Us

artpaintingLAB group of artists

Fine Art, Graffiti, Murals and Paintings

Why Are We Here?

artpaintingLAB (formerly Lateral Passage) was founded in Dubai by Sam Kaufman Saliba in 2007, who, passionate about art, her goal was to bring art to the region.  Sam relocated to New York City in 2010 for 5 years only to come back to Dubai after experiencing and seeing some of the best and most authentic street art on the streets of New York and the most amazing art exhibitions in the city.  As soon as she came back to Dubai, Sam then reinvigorated the company and began gathering a group of talented rising star artists to form an amazing team of multidisciplinary visual artists. Her goal now was to become the leading group of artists / studio in Dubai to serve the needs of the industry, art consultants, interior designers, hotels and restaurants as well as public art in the beautiful city of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the rest of the Gulf region. 

We are a happy team of artists, graffiti artists, painters, visual artists and happy people who come together to curate, create and inspire.
