Mimi Adu-Serwaah (b. 1994) is an emerging artist based in Accra, Ghana. Her paintings join
artistic abstraction with an extent of realism in illustrations of figurative paintings,
employing vibrant kaleidoscopic colors. This style and theme reflects her unique perspective and connection with the concept of perfect imperfections in people.
She is originally a pharmacist by profession, having completed her doctorate at the Kwame
Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2019 and is now pursuing and additional Master’s degree in Health Informatics at George Mason University in Virginia, USA.
In always having an affinity for art, thankfully, she noticed the gift for creating early in life. Interestingly, during the lockdown in the pandemic of 2020, Adu-Serwaah took to art as an outlet. Since then, she has maintained a religious art practice.
She finds inspiration from figurative painter Rose Datoc Dall. Mimi has had 2 solo exhibitions; one at Allouche Gallery in Los Angeles, California and another at Institute Museum of Ghana in Accra, Ghana in 2022.
She has participated in several group exhibitions, including Chilli Art Projects in London, 2022, Luanda Biennale in Angola, 2021, the Ghana Trade Exhibition and The Black Star Fashion & Arts Festival in Accra, Ghana, 2020. She was a visiting fellow at the Noldor Residency in 2021 and had a residency with ARD artists’ residency in Cairo, Egypt in 2023.
