Ubani, Deime

Deime Ubani (born 1988, Nassau, Bahamas) is an abstract painter. Born to a Nigerian father and a Bahamian mother from a mixed Caribbean background, Ubani grew up in Nassau and attended St. Augustine's College before obtaining her associates degree from The College of The Bahamas  in 2010.

After graduating from the College of The Bahamas, Ubani began working until a car accident in 2012 became her catalyst for change. The event brought the artist back to her passion, and during her recovery, Ubani returned to painting full time. In 2012, the artist exhibited at The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas in Amateur Artists Night. Her work was selected for Transforming Spaces in 2015, and in the same year, she was commissioned to create works for Baha Mar.   

Using mixed media on traditional surfaces, Ubani explores mark making, pattern and process.
