Atlantis, The Palm will showcase the world’s largest art canvas in November this year. Created by British artist Sacha Jafri, the canvas is hoped to raise in excess of AED110 million (US$30 million) for charity.

Dubbed as the ‘Modern-day Sistine Chapel’, the canvas covers the Atlantis ballroom floor, coming in at just under 2,000 sqm or around the size of two football pitches. Jafri is using a massive room inside the luxury hotel Atlantis in Dubai to finish the work which will be unveiled in November. The work will then be divided into 60 smaller canvasses and will go on sale at a gala dinner event in December.

With the support of The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), together with The Global Gift Foundation, Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai Cares, and the UAE Government, the canvas is the flagship piece in the artist’s ‘Humanity Inspired’ charity drive.

Money raised from the sale of the artwork will go towards installing internet connectivity in some of the world’s poorest regions, enabling those in need to learn about medicine, healthcare, vaccines and sanitation.

The ‘Humanity Inspired’ initiative is under the Royal Patronage of HE Sheikh Nahayan Al Nahayan with the additional backing of various entities of the UAE Government & Public Sector including UAE Ministry of Education, UAE Ministry of Tolerance & Coexistence, and the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).

The work will also be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records for Jafri to claim the title of the world’s largest canvas painting ever made. Get a closer look at the massive The Journey of Humanity painting above and then visit Humanity Inspired’s website for more details on the auction.
Jafri said: “After a conversation with UNICEF earlier in the year, my eyes were opened to the fact that an estimated 385 million children live in extreme poverty around the world and these children are twice as likely to die in childhood.
