Abi Salami is a Nigerian-American visual artist based in Dallas, Texas.
A self-taught artist, Salami graduated with a Masters in Professional Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin and worked in public accounting and real estate for almost a decade before deciding to follow her passion for art as a full-time career.
Her life in the United States as a Nigerian immigrant plays a key role in shaping her body of work, particularly her latest collection of paintings. Although she primarily works in acrylic paint, she is also very fond of experimenting with various mixed media mediums, such as collage.
Her works are currently on display at the African American Museum of Dallas, Avanti Ristorante in Dallas, Texas, George A. Purefoy Municipal Center in Frisco, Texas and an upcoming residential development at 1514 Elm Street in Downtown Dallas.
