Demie’ Ubani (b.1988) is a Bahamian artist of Nigerian and Barbadian descent living and working in New Providence, Bahamas. Her heritage influences her love of colors and mixture of mediums; ranging between acrylics, oil pastels, oil stains, magazine clippings, and epoxy resin. Her usage of diverse materials highlights her multi heritage and meshes the gap between time, effects and memory. While keeping the balance she prioritizes in her work. Throughout her early years, Demie’ was drawn to abstraction and it became a way of expression when words would fail. Her interest in the arts was furthered by close family members who were also creative locally and internationally. One in particular is her late uncle, african american artist Philemon Ried (VA, OR). After graduating from St.Augustine's College, Demie’ opted to attend the former College of The Bahamas, now University of The Bahamas where she obtained her Associates degree in Art in 2009.
Deime’ showcases her fine art under Ubani Artworks and most recently a home decor brand under Big Wood Bahamas. Her work has been featured by The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, The Central Bank of The Bahamas, The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, The Salus Project, and SeeMe Art Takes Times Square art show. In part her pieces were also among those chosen as part of the interior design of the Baha Mar resort in the nation’s capital. She campaigns for more artistic opportunities in her country by hosting and curating open calls for local artists.
