Dubai has been going crazy for all things creative this year, whether it's fabulous exhibitions or gallery shows.

And now Jumeirah Beach Road is being turned into a brilliant open-air street art museum by top muralists.

Blank walls across the quiet residential area are being transformed with spectacular works and Arabic caligraphy.

Dozens of buildings are getting make-overs thanks to the efforts of 30 artists from the UAE and abroad.

The murals range from traditional works to quirky, ultra-modern pieces and are part of the project launched last month by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

He said at the time: He added: "Our objective is to turn Dubai into a open-air museum where the whole world could see its race against time in terms of development.

"We want all our initiatives and projects to be driven by innovation. We will provide all the support and resources necessary for turning promising creative ideas into reality."

It's the perfect opportunity to get out and see some beautiful art, totally free.

Artworks on display now, Jumeirah Beach Road.
