Seek out the Paul Stolper Gallery booth at Abu Dhabi Art and you will not be disappointed. Musician turned artist Brian Eno has made some enchanting and hypnotic lightboxes, each accompanied by a musical composition - certainly worth checking out. And there are also some sculptures from Damien Hirst’s 2014 Schizophrenogenesis series - basically oversized pills, a tablet bottle and a scalpel. Intriguing.

Ben Johnson’s paintings of the niches from Jerusalem’s The Dome of the Rock are quite incredible in their rendering and make you look twice to believe that they are actually paintings and not photographs.

A visit to this booth will not disappoint.
