Digital artist imagines Dubai in 2009 film Avatar’s alien world


Dubai-based Digital artist Jyo John Mulloor is reimagining the city’s landmarks.

In March, he launched a series of artwork that showed Dubai full of snow and even lush greenery. With his creative work, he made it to the news and is now gaining a reputation as an artist who can take UAE landmarks to wonderful places.

Before the release of the sequel of the 2009 movie Avatar, which was awarded the film of the decade, Mulloor has again reimagined landmarks. This time, he has taken them to the alien world of Pandora, the moon where the movie was set.

Mulloor has now reconceptualised popular sites like Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Frame, and the Museum of the Future in the universe of Pandora.

In the film by James Cameron, still today one of the highest-grossing in history, Pandora is a fictional moon that is rich with minerals. It is a beautiful place full of scenery.

The Dubai photographer has combined the two places.

He told The National that he found “each scene breathtaking”.
