MEET MIMI DESIR

I am from a place of people who have been marked by the tribulations of history and constant migrations over Oceans and across continents. This is where I found inspiration, dipping my brushes in the soil of my ancestors and in the oceans they crossed, to spread colors and movement in waves and patterns. On the virgin canvas and lets the whole world know that i am still alive and kicking despite. I am the memory of my History.

Ultimately art has been a secret love affair with myself and my roots and I use my brushes to constantly write and rewrite the history of this love affair bringing it out of the shadows and making it colorful for others to learn and to enjoy.
