Artist Alley

Support your fellow local and regional artists and explore their original work, crafts, art and so much more...

where creativity and passion collide!

Artists and creators are an integral part of the Middle East pop culture community, and the Artist Alley zone is a cornerstone of the Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC). Our Artist Alley is a safe space where emerging and established artists from across the region gather to showcase their latest work, sell their art pieces, take commissions requests for visitors, and network with fellow artists. The Middle East art community is a respectful, supportive, and encouraging community that is deeply passionate about art and creativity, and MEFCC welcomes artists across all experience levels, mediums and walks of life. *T&C's apply.
