Princella Seripenah is a Ghanaian Artist and Illustrator based in Nottingham, UK.
Princella centres her art around black women, aiming to shift away from historical depictions where they carry burdens or linger in the background- rarely centred and at rest. Princella instead places them at the heart of the frame, capturing moments of ease and humanity. Through this approach, her art becomes a gentle invitation for anyone to connect with the shared experiences of being human in the chaotic world we live in.
Princella brings a unique perspective to her artistic practice. While she did not pursue a traditional art education, she has developed her craft through years of dedicated practice and exploration. Her background in medicine and public health enriched her deep understanding of mental health and its complexities and has had a profound influence on her art.
She has worked with TheStudioNYC, Penguin Random House, Ten Speed Press, MEOCKA, HBOMax, Chan-Zuckerberg Foundation and Tangle Teezer.
Her latest art exhibition was the Venice International Art Fair 2022, Italy.
