In 2013 Saatchi Gallery Director in London, Rebecca Wilson, had chosen Dirar as one of the best 12 young artists worldwide to be on their list for art investments.
“Works by emerging artists such as these have the potential for increasing in value and leading to future gains, and they are also much more affordable than bigger name artists and much easier to access. Peter Doig made his famous painting, White Canoe (1990-1), while he was a student at the Chelsea College of Art & Design in London. The work was acquired by the Saatchi Gallery and sold many years later in 2007 at Sotheby’s for £5.7 million. Buying art as an investment might not be important to you and you may never wish to sell the works you buy. But even so, it’s an exciting thought to imagine that the work you are buying could be by a future art star – even the next Peter Doig – and that you got there first.”
