It’s not too late to head down to Ayyam Gallery in Dubai’s Alserkal Avenue to check out the 20th edition of the Young Collector’s Auction tonight.

With a treasure-trove of works by influential Syrian painters including modernists Nasser Chaura, Fateh Moudarres, Louay Kayyali and Omar Hamdi, and contemporary figures such as Asaad Arabi, Ahmad Moualla and Safwan Dahoul - whose stunning work is pictured here, it is a staggering lineup of seminal painters. It not only provides young collectors the chance to get on the ladder but it also gives seasoned buyers an exclusive opportunity to expand their collections with rare works that chart the region’s development in art.

* It starts tonight at 7pm, Ayyam Gallery, Al Quoz, Alserkal Avenue
